Travel tales, advice and tips from Amy Baker: Author of Miss-Adventures and Co-Founder of The Riff Raff

Please note this event is FEMALE ONLY!

Many of us have dreamt of quitting a full-time job to go travelling. Amy Baker did exactly that and escaped to South America with her backpack. Before her departure, many had given her "life advice", yet Amy decided to ignore it all. Her adventures are told in her book: Miss-Adventures: A tale of ignoring Life Advice While Backpacking Around South America. Nowadays, Amy travels, writes and advocates for female travellers and writers. She's co-founded The Riff Raff, a writer's community that run events, a podcast and offers mentoring and manuscript advice to inform, educate and motivate aspiring writers by pairing them with published authors. Amy is working on her next book and a science fiction TV comedy. 

We will spend this special evening with Amy who will talk us through her backpacking experience: share the funny and scary stories, give female traveller tips and some (more helpful) advice.

- If you are new to solo travel or just thinking about it, come along and we may scare you off or more likely get you all geared up to take your first trip.- If you are an experienced solo traveller, come to hear and share stories, get inspirations and make new friends.- If you a blogger or thinking about turning your own tales into a book, come to talk to Amy who is more than happy to share her experience. - If South America is on your bucket list, come to ask questions and gain some tips from Amy and others.


Or simply come for some fun stories and meeting some wonderful people!
