Freelance travel writing
Freelance writer Stephanie Dosch lives to travel, whether that means sipping suizos in Barcelona’s milk bars or pursuing a bird through Cambodia’s jungles. She prides herself on having an eye for the authentic and affordable, yet still stylish and savvy: colorful espadrilles in Madrid; a fab-but-frugal rooftop terrace in Istanbul; aperitivi in a former mechanics’ garage in Rome. Beyond shopping and drinking, she seeks out bigger tales, whether she’s chronicling an African safari or the history of San Sebastián’s eating clubs.
A native Seattlite, she resided in Madrid’s bohemian Malasaña district for over six years before relocating to New York in early 2012. Her writing has appeared around the web, on sites such as pocketvillage, Guiri Guide, and La Torguta Viajera, and in print in InMadrid Magazine and Lonely Planet. An expert on all things Spain, she blogs about her expat experiences on theViatrix and has been a guide for Rick Steves’ Europe Through the Back Door since 2009.
Stephanie has experience as a columnist, translator, copywriter and web designer. Her nerdy, lifelong hobbies—birding and watching classic movies—would seemingly belie her discriminating eye. She just calls it “geek chic.”
