Charity De Souza

Charity De Souza is Trips to Discover’s Managing Editor. She has been with Trips to Discover since 2016, when she joined the team as the site's Florida content writer. Born and raised in Florida, Charity was bitten by the travel bug on her first international trip to London.

She moved to London in 2008 and has since lived in Thailand, China, Japan, Indonesia, New Zealand, the Czech Republic, England, and Portugal. Charity was a full-time digital nomad for 5 years, traveling to over 60 countries across the globe with her husband. Some of her favorite experiences include skydiving in Switzerland, road-tripping through Iceland, and watching a sunset in the Sahara Desert. She currently lives in Portugal but spends considerable time traveling each year.

Charity has over 7 years of experience as a travel writer and editor, with her work appearing in acclaimed travel sites like Kayak and HotelsCombined, and she has previously written for brands such as Carnival Cruises, smarTours, Beach.com, and more. Charity’s writing expertise spans numerous topics, ranging from local Florida content to destination guides in Europe and Asia and the best hotels and vacation rental stays across the globe.

Before joining Trips to Discover, Charity worked as a Psychology professor at a University with her Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Central Florida. Changing directions in 2014, she moved to London to pursue a Masters in Business from Brunel University London and began her new career as a freelance travel writer and editor.
