Georgina Groom is a lifestyle writer based in London. Before joining ROADBOOK, she worked at SUITCASE Magazine, contributing stories on food, travel, design and culture, alongside owning her own column spotlighting lesser-trodden neighbourhoods. Her work has taken her from Downtown Brooklyn to a remote island in Thailand – via a stein-smattered pit stop in Munich – but the British capital is where she feels most inspired. 

What does a journey mean to you? 

Journey is the magic of discovering a different landscape, and learning the stories of those who celebrate their community and its centuries-old traditions. 

Which country or location most inspires you?


Where would you go back to, and why?
Corfu. I spent a lot of holidays in Halikounas when I was growing up. It’s blissfully beautiful, with tangled olive groves, sprawling dunes and low-key tavernas dishing up Mediterranean goodness. 

Top insider tip for London?
It’s a city best explored on foot. If you’re hungry, The Counter in Notting Hill is always a good idea – they have a solid drinks menu, too. 

What journey would you most like to go on?

My future wish-list ranges from a gelato-fuelled road trip along the Amalfi Coast to hiking the storied Trans Bhutan Trail.
