While working as a travel writer for Google and living in Brazil, I took on another editorial assignment in 2015. Over the course of a couple of months, I co-wrote Explore Rio de Janeiro, a publication by Insight Guides for independent, adventurous travellers. Comprising the bulk of this book, I created a dozen self-guided walking itineraries around the city. Taking visitors beyond the usual sights, I used my local knowledge to focus on areas of historical, cultural and natural interest. I also wrote the section related to Brazilian food, with recommendations for restaurants in Rio.
