Ben Lerwill is a freelance writer on a constant mission to find the ideal work-life balance. Ben is based in a small Oxfordshire village, with his wife and two children, where the rural lifestyle helps him relax after travelling. Although he’s been all over the world, his favourite place of all is the UK – preferably as far away from mobile reception as possible.
An adventurer, Ben enjoys writing about the outdoors and cross-country rail journeys. His travel hit list includes hiking in the Balkans and a trip up to Orkney. As an avid sports enthusiast, Ben can be found playing football, rugby, and cricket. The soundtrack accompanying his sporting pursuits is anything coming out of BBC 6 music.
Having been a freelance travel writer for over 12 years, Ben’s work can be seen in a variety of online publications from National Geographic Traveller to The Guardian.
A resident sports writer on Inspires by Avis, Ben has covered Formula E extensively.
