Hi, I’m Emma Bamford

And I really did run away to a desert island. Strictly speaking, at first I ran away to the jungle of deepest, darkest Borneo, after answering an advert on the internet. What’s more, I ran away to a sailing boat anchored in the deepest, darkest jungle of Borneo owned by a man I’d never met to live on it with him (and his cat) after answering a ‘crew wanted’ advert on the internet. But after the jungle there were definitely lots of palm-studded, white sand islands surrounded by warm, turquoise waters.

Casting Off  is my first book, and explains what happened to me after I left behind my career as a journalist in London and booked a one-way flight to start my adventure. Along the way, mixed up with new friends, pygmy elephants, lost tribes, pirates and superyachts, I learned a few lessons about the importance of letting go and how it is possible to break free and find happiness – and love – on your own terms.

On this site you can read my original blog from my time travelling, along with news and updates on the publication of Casting Off. Buy your copy now on Amazon.

Fair winds – and happy reading,
