Violet Cloutman

Violet first joined our company as an intern in our office in Japan, where she lived for 8 months in 2013. Since then she has relocated to Bristol, where as our resident Queen of Copy she is the most prolific contributor to all our blogs. Her blog pieces give a thorough insight into all aspects of Burmese culture, food, and history.

Violet has travelled extensively throughout Asia, and has a particular interest in the great outdoors and adventure activities – from scuba diving to kayaking, trekking, cycling, canyoning and skiing. Her top tip when visiting Burma is to spend a night at the Green Hill Valley Elephant Camp. The surroundings are stunning, and you can rest assured that the elephants are well looked-after!
