Dian Emery

Thumbnail image Dian Emery started traveling at the age of two when her parents moved to Germany, and her passion for new adventures was born during long summer vacations touring Austrian castles, camping in Spain and train trips to France with her family. She continued her travel escapes after leaving university, but soon discovered that money was necessary to traipse around the world, so Dian settled down for a few years to do the 9 to 5 routine. She started her working life on the stock exchange trading floor, moved to administering those dastardly derivatives, then dabbled in the nonprofit world with a stint at the National Cancer Institute. Now she writes about travel, is the Managing Editor of GirlsGetaway.com, and still loves to travel.
