NEWS: passportstamps.uk has been named VUSA Travel Blog of the year 2016.

passportstamps.uk was created by Helen Wright, a plane-spotting, compulsive holiday – and sometimes, trouble – maker based in London. Helen has been a freelance lifestyle journalist for eleven years, writing for titles such as National Geographic Traveller, Daily Mail, The Express, Fabulous, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Stylist, MrHyde, Spa Secrets, Great Escapes, ABTA, ASTA, FHM and OK! Helen has written stories on virtually everything from fashion to festivals, women’s health, sex, relationships, art, beauty, grooming and booze, but the topic she likes to chat about the most is, of course, travel. In 2010 Helen won Virgin Atlantic’s Red Hot Reporter competition and in 2013 was VUSA Highly Commended Travel Writer of the Year.  In 2015 Helen was shortlisted for a British Society of Magazine Editors (BSME) award for Editor of the Year (Branded Content). In the same year, Passportstamps.uk was a finalist for Online Consumer Travel Publication of the Year at the Travel Media Awards and again in 2016.
