Natalie has worked in the travel industry for 16 years—half her life! She left her native London in 2009 and since 2013 has been working with Context Travel, leaders in small-group, scholar-led walking tours in 28 cultural capitals. The Context vision is to bring together local specialists with curious travelers to educate and impassion them; to allow them access to places and cultures that might otherwise remain out of sight to the casual visitor; to invite them off the tourist track and into the real life of the people, history, and culture that makes these capitals, destinations.
As well as running Context’s Central and Southern Europe program, Natalie plays a leading role in their storytelling and marketing initiatives. On the side, she continues to pen articles for travel and urbanism publications, as well as writing guidebooks on her beloved adopted hometown, Berlin.
