After travelling to over seventy countries and living in five, the author distills the best undiscovered destinations and shares insider advice. Searching for Unique is meant for travellers seeking hidden sights that most people overlook or simply do not know exist.
Join the author for an evening talk that explores lesser-known destinations from her second book and delves into on-the-ground insights that cut through fear and build curiosity about our diverse planet.
