Paola Thomas

Travel Writer

Paola is a food and travel photographer and writer. Originally from England, she is now very happily exploring, photographing and eating her way around the Pacific North West.

Paola moved to Seattle eight years ago and was immediately entranced by its unique beauty and vibe - snow-capped volcanoes, sparkling lakes and bald eagles aren't exactly part of daily life in London. Paola has a dangerous boutique hotel habit and loves nothing more than investigating quirky shops, hiking in gorgeous scenery and seeking out local farmers' markets, vineyards and restaurants, much to the disgust of her nine-year-old daughter, who would much rather be at Disneyland.

When not on a plane, she writes the food, travel and photography blog mirrormirror, and is a regular contributor to Edible Seattle and Zagat's Seattle.
