Niamh McClelland is a Dublin-based writer. Marrying her interest in other cultures with her love of travel, she completed an MA in Social and Cultural Anthropology in Vienna in 2012, and went onto work in digital media, focussing predominantly on - yes, you guessed it - lifestyle, culture and travel. When she's not on the job, you'll find her planning her next trip, downloading yet another podcast, and wondering whether there exists a single dish which cheese can't enhance.
