About me

The Gypsy Queen is Laura Brown, an extensive traveller, writer and specialist in communications solutions. She is a native of Africa, half Zimbabwean and half South African, and speaks five languages – English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Japanese. The travel bug bit early. Born in Zimbabwe, childhood family holidays usually involved long road trips across Southern Africa – either to visit family in different areas or to find the most remote fishing spot possible. Yes, she bathed in crocodile and hippopotamus infested rivers, narrowly escaped being trampled by a herd of wild elephants and saw lions in their natural habitats all before the age of fourteen, when she moved to Europe.
She has since lived in Switzerland, France, England, Ethiopia, Japan, Chile, Brazil and South Africa. She is currently based in Colombia.
The Gypsy Queen has worked as a journalist, editor, English teacher and translator.
