Helena is the Travel Editor for Woman & Home, Woman’s Weekly, Woman, Woman’s Own and Chat. As a journalist with 8 years’ experience, she has also worked for titles including Stylist, The Evening Standard and Heat.


She is a keen traveller who loves nothing more than exploring a new country. Of all the places she's visited, her favourite (and most talked about) has been a road trip around California. Starting in San Francisco, she travelled over 1,500 miles in 2 weeks exploring the length and breadth of the sunny state. One of her highlights was spending 2 days in Yosemite National Park walking the many trails. But she also loved lounging by the pool in Palm Springs’ 40 degree heat!


Her dream trip is a safari. A fierce animal lover, she dreams of seeing some of the big five out in the wild. She had a trip to South Africa in the diary for April 2020, but it was sadly cancelled as the pandemic hit the UK. As soon as travel is back on the cards, it will be pencilled back into the diary! Her wish-list also includes India – to explore her husband’s heritage more – as well as exploring more of America’s stunning national parks.
