After 20 years working in international aid and development, and as an inveterate wanderer, Julie is now writing - combining her passions for walking and travelling with her enjoyment of words. She is the author of a series of walks guidebooks for Victoria, Australia: Melbourne's Best Bush, Bay and City Walks; Best Walks of Geelong, The Bellarine and the Brisbane Ranges; Melbourne for Dogs; and A Visitors Guide to Best Walks of the Great Ocean Road (out Christmas 2015). The blog supporting her walks books is to be found at http://www.walksmelbourne.com. Julie also writes for her weekly global travel anthology blog: http://www.50wordsfor50countries.com. Julie can also be found occasionally in the twittersphere at @WalksMelbourne, in a variety of walks articles with Great Walks magazine, and at online magazine, Weekend Notes (www.weekendnotes.com).
