About Me

I’m Sophie, last name Whitehead (hence the blog name, get it?). I’m a 27-year-old writer working at a snack company in Richmond just outside of London. I’m lucky enough to travel around with my boyfriend Matt, with my friends, and with my rather large family, seeing amazing countries and – my absolute passion – eating delicious food.

I started wunderhead in February 2018 after a trip to Seville with Matt. I was telling everyone about how fantastic it was and all the reasons why they should immediately book plane tickets to this wonderful city, when it suddenly hit me – I should be writing this stuff down! As a copywriter at a food brand I write every day, but I’d been looking for a creative outlet where I could write about something different, just for me. So I started this blog!

Here you’ll find weekend trips, city breaks, family jaunts and group holidays with friends, and I may even treat you to some days out from London too.

My glamourous cousin Laura works at a fashion label in Chelsea, when she’s not exploring far flung places with her husband Tom in search of good surf. If you’re all very lucky I’ll keep persuading her to part with her tropical travel tips – read her first guest post, The Honeymoon Guide to Morocco!
