Stories and photos for travel and
lifestyle outlets covering culture, design,
dining and boutique accommodation.

As a freelance travel journalist, travel writing is where my love of places, words, people and pictures come together. 

Since 2012 I’ve published more than 350 posts on my blog, Paper Planes, about traveling and living in Thailand. 

When it goes quiet there, it means I’m busy writing and supplying images to other travel and lifestyle outlets focusing on culture, design, dining and boutique accommodation.

Alana served as our Lonely Planet Local in Chiang Mai, tasked at monitoring all CMS content online and in our guidebooks, ensuring up-to-date information for existing content and elevating coverage by adding exciting new points of interest and promoting Thailand travel in many online articles. Alana is reliable, personable and seamlessly adopted the Lonely Planet TOV and ethos from the outset. Her success as an LP Local caught the eye of other departments within the company, and she soon began contributing to video projects too, pitching new videos and appearing on screen. If you’re looking for a content creator who can do it all, Alana is your gal.
