Raised by expat parents in Germany and Japan, Arwen was bitten by the travel bug at an early age. After completing her undergraduate studies and law degree in the United States, she spent four years living and working in London. From there she travelled extensively in Europe and to points beyond.

She has now been based in Singapore for the past four years and is rediscovering much loved destinations from her vagabond childhood in Southeast Asia and finding new favorite places.
