LLois on the Loose

Journalism

I write for various publications in the UK and the US and my work has appeared in The Guardian and the New York Times. I am also a contributing editor to the US travel magazine, Overland Journal. 

The main body of my writing encompasses all aspects of travel, adventure and motorcycling, with a special interest in historic expeditions, female adventurers and all things classic and clunky. As a fan of anything vintage, I have a fascination with early overland journeys and have written a series of articles on the subject for Overland Journal, as well as contributing a section on pioneering motorcycle travellers to the new edition of the Adventure Motorcycling Handbook.

Here are a few of my articles. Click on the images below to read in full.
