Travel Writing

Venice, Italy

Lucinda is also a travel writer and a winner of the Ed Lacy Travel-Writing Award, for an article about Gibraltar. Her travels have taken her all over the world: an obscure pumpkin festival in Belgium, the Galapagos Islands during an Ecuadorean coup, the Torres Strait Islands (from where she hitched a lift back to Australia on a passing aeroplane), the souks of Syria, the spice island of Zanzibar, on mule-back around Petra in Jordan and to watch an orchestra play an entire concert on amplified vegetables in a smoky Viennese jazz club.

In 2017, her book The Writer Abroad was published by British Library Publishing. In January 2021, she finished writing Dickens and Travel, which will be published by Pen & Sword Books whenever the pandemic permits!
