Welcome to debra-armstrong.com.

I am an accomplished writer with experience in writing for lifestyle brands, airlines, hotels, spas and the travel industry in general. I have worked in travel for over 30 years.  I have studied Travel and Lifestyle Writing at the London School of Journalism.

More recently, I write features about green/responsible tourism and pitch stories to newspapers and magazines in an attempt to raise awareness on subjects very important and close to my heart.

With my photography, I tend to gravitate to people.   Environmental portraiture has become my favourite genre.

To contact me or enquire about my availability for writing or a photo shoot, please visit the Enquiries page.

Thank you for visiting my website.  I look forward to being of assistance.


My work, in fact a big chunk of my life, revolves around travel, writing, blogging and photography. On any given day, I may be out exploring and photographing people in their homes and villages in S.E. Asia.  I may be doing yoga or shopping in a local market to experiment with some of the local recipes.

On other days, I may be on a plane to Laos or London or a ferry to Kao Tao, a neighbour of Koh Samui.   I may even be writing a feature about hiking on Hong Kong Island.
