Rachel Bale is travel writer, blogger and diehard coffee hunter. After moving abroad to live in Berlin for the past three years, she's now back in Melbourne where she manages The Department of Wandering and freelances for a variety of online and print publications full time.
Her work is a visual feast for the design-conscious traveller who is keen to experience the very best a destination has to offer. Her photography and words speak to curious wayfarers who seek to see the world in new ways, forgoing the tourist traps and favouring instead local experiences, eateries and hidden corners to get back to the roots and unveil the heart and soul of a place.
In addition to pouring her heart into The Department of Wandering, she is also a Travel Editor for Electrify Mag, a New-York based travel and lifestyle magazine and a regular travel contributor to Ninemsn Elsewhere.
