I’m Hannah Brandler, an award-winning freelance journalist, and features editor at Business Traveller, specialising in travel, lifestyle, and the world of hospitality. In my spare time, I use this space to spill the beans on matters of lifestyle, the restaurant and travel scene.

My work has been featured in publications such as La Cucina Italiana, 101 Holidays, Pellicle Magazine and Square Meal.

I was awarded Features Journalist of the Year in 2022, 2021 and 2020 within the Destination and Accommodation categories at the BTJA’s (Business Travel Journalism Awards) for features on Thailand’s northernmost province of Chiang Rai, exploring the impact of the pandemic on the guest experience in hotels, and discovering innovation (and cheesesteaks) in Philadelphia.

During the first national lockdown, I turned to narrating adventures chez moi – home-trotting, if you will – for my project: “No Travel” Tales. Every week, I wrote about a new territory, discussing the choreography of dodging joggers, the symphony of beeping kitchen appliances, and the disappearance of BOGOF in the supermarkets. Check out the posts here.
