Sarah-Jane Radcliffe
Business Development Guru + Family Travel Strategist
Although quintessentially British in many ways, SJ in fact grew up globetrotting, living in an eclectic mix of countries from India to Australia and Portugal to the USA. After 6 years working for a luxury family Tour Operator in London she moved, with her now husband, to HK in 2010 and joined a travel guide publisher. After the birth of her first son in 2015 Sj's focus shifted to family travel and Little Steps has proved a perfect place to combine her two passions in life: Travel & Family.
Flip-flops or none at all, I am a beach bum at heart.
Wine usually. It's 5 o'clock somewhere isn't it?
The world is full of fabulous possibilities but it's up to you to get out there and find them.
Linda Haden
Mommy Contributor
Linda’s first job as a hotel reviewer took her out of the confines of Singapore to the shores of Europe. She settled in London having met the man of her dreams, but the travel bug bit her again, so off she went with hubby in tow to South East Asia. Zurich then beckoned, and she transformed into a domestic goddess, tending to house and hearth as well as two under twos. She finally returned home in 2011, and landed her dream job as a travel journalist. She welcomed her third little bundle of joy recently, and is now back on the dreaded night shift.
