About the Author
Dr. Jill Nash grew up in (arguably) the best place in Britain - The Lake District. Always one for fun and adventure she trained as an outdoor pursuits instructor before globe trotting all over the world on scuba-diving expeditions and studying in various parts of France and Turkey. She married Carlo in Italy, and they gave birth to their first daughter Gaia Maria 2 years ago. She still hasn t lost her love for real travel , and refuses to stay in large family resorts, eating convenience foods, just because she has a young family. Carlo Nash also a fellow Northerner (but with a family history in Italy - a much guarded family secret!) grew up in Bolton, Lancashire. Carlo is actually a professional premiership footballer, which allows him to travel the world during the off season , but unfortunately he cannot partake in all the dangerous activities - he persuades his wife to instead! He is the man behind the lens, painstakingly making sure every shot and every angle is perfect. As a new Dad he still hasn t lost his adventurous spirit, and always looks for the most adventurous and unusual places to visit, such as the far away Haa Alif Atoll in the Maldives which was a mission to reach, especially with a 16 week old baby!
