Meet the team
Worldette has an amazing team of writers, editors and contributors.
We are an international team based in locations all over the world – how could the Worldette team be any other way?!
Each member of our team has traveled, usually to many destinations, and/or has lived abroad, sometimes in many different countries. We are passionate about exploring new places, understanding the world and are always on the look out for our next holiday destination.
We are proud of the content we produce and are active in making sure our efforts provide coverage to those who need it.
Geographically we may be countries and continents apart but we often reach out to each other with our news, fun stories and to offer support to each other, both professionally and personally.
In short, we love working on Worldette and producing content for you.
The wonderful Worldette team
