About the Author

Georgina Lawton is a 27-year-old journalist, speaker, travel writer and former Guardian Weekend columnist. She writes about the intersection of travel and identity, as well as ethical, adventure and solo travel, and has been featured in publications such as The Independent, Ref29, Stylist, Travel + Leisure, VICE, Suitcase, and Time Out London. Her first book Raceless (Sphere), a memoir on family and identity, is released in September 2020. Georgina's love of travel began when she was a child, with holidays across Europe with her family. But at 22, after losing her father, Georgina uncovered more about her black heritage and began travelling on her own, with intention. She travelled to places in which she saw herself reflected (Cuba, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Costa Rica) and she travelled to learn more about who she was. Volunteering, immersing herself in Spanish home-stays, embarking upon safaris in South Africa and adventures in the Galapagos Islands, Georgina documented her experiences on her old blog (girlunfurled) and in the mainstream press. Travel for Georgina has always been fun, but it's also been a catalyst for piecing together a personal identity, and healing and restoring herself.
