Christine Bayly was born in 1967 in Johannesburg. She worked in advertising until she came to her senses and went freelance. Soon after that, she and her partner started a travel guide which has kept them busy between their own travels. She loves yoga, wild spaces, whopping storms and melted jelly babies. And is a compulsive picker-upperer of treasure, and abandoned animals. Contributing author to the Life Righting Collective’s This is how it is anthology.
