Camden Luxford

Camden lives for long, uncomfortable journeys and dreams of the Trans-Siberian Railway. From hitch-hiking in Europe, through Asia by bus and boat, she has found herself in the Peruvian Andes, where she relishes the colors of the festivals, the warmth of the people and the hearty flavors of the soups. When she’s not exploring her new home, she’s studying politics by distance and writing for her blog, The Brink of Something Else, or as a regular contributor to Matador Abroad.
