I guess you want to know who Erica Ho is.

I travel first and write second, even though I started the other way around. I used to be a reporter for TIME in Hong Kong and, before that, a closet geek over at Gizmodo and Lifehacker. I also like to eat Mexican food and unfriendly kangaroos for dinner.

The Quick Lowdown to England
