Emma Paterson

Emma Dogs37 years ago I was born just outside of Newcastle, England and was brought up in a family of 9 (including our dog). At 20 the heady lights of London were calling and my love of adventure and travelling began. In 2009, as a side project, I launched an affiliate marketing website which in December 2011 presented me with an opportunity to leave my twelve-year career and travel. My first stop (and last as it turned out) was Ho Chi Minh City. Three and half years later I’m still here…
