Rebecca Wurd
Rebecca Wurd Editor

About Rebecca

Creative soul. Writer. Traveller. Rebecca is the Travel Editor of this blog and several others in Asia that she runs for Expedia.

Rebecca is local -- yes, never bluff lah. After graduating from NUS, she had a big adventure backpacking solo in New Zealand. She remains infinitely curious about the world. When not answering questions about her mixed background or the (apparently) endless wonders of curly hair, she enjoys going out to experience new places, learning new ways to see from citizens of the world and soaking in the beauty/nightmares of travel with random spontaneity or just chillin' like a villain (but, like, a really nice villain).
