About Nicola Burridge

Nicola Burridge Editor and Writer - Kayak Guru

Hi, I’m Nicola, a writer and editor living on the scenic west coast of Scotland with my partner and our one-year-old cockapoo pup, Jasper.

Having grown up in a very active and sporty family, spending time in the great outdoors is something that has always come naturally to me. Writing a short bio, on the other hand, not so much.

I enjoy hikes in the picturesque fells of England’s Lake District National Park. I’ve been vacationing regularly since I was a baby and it was one of my grandparents’ favorite places. It’s one of mine too. 

I love to travel and have spent a lot of time in the US and various countries in Europe. My dad has lived in Florida for the last twenty years so I have a soft spot for all things Floridian. I intended to move with him but returned to go to university in Scotland. 

When I travel to warmer climates I love paddleboarding and playing tennis. When at home in the not-so-warm British climate, I love walks on the beach with my little dog and taking hiking trips to the Isle of Arran.

I have a MA (hons.) 2.1, English obtained from the University of Dundee
