Sophie - Guest Writer/Slow-Travel Sensation
Sophie grew up in Shrewsbury, England, before making the decision to move to Venice at the age of 19. Three years later, in 2008, she made the move to The Big Apple. In the years to follow she alternated between living in the fast-paced city that never sleeps, New York and the city where the locals always seem to be asleep, Venice. In 2015 she moved to Kiel in Northern Germany and opened John’s Burgers, where they pride themselves on sourcing exceptional, local produce. Nowadays she splits her time between Germany and Italy.
Sophie speaks 3 languages fluently and passionately immerses herself into every place she visits, making her the perfect new addition to the Fleek Family, as this girl has definitely found her fleek.
Venturing out into the world, she can’t tell if the emotion she is feeling is anxiety or excitement, she just knows that she needs to get away.
Fleek fiction this is not. Based on Sophie’s real adventures through the Veneto, through her eyes she guides us to her favourite hidden places, showing us how by slowing down, she gains more in life that she ever thought possible.
Sophie, welcome to the Fleek Family…Stay tuned every Sunday for another instalment of slow travelling with Sophie, the perfect Sunday morning read.
