Hiya! I’m Olivia and I’m the Digital Marketing Executive at DOWTK. I’m a lover of all things ancient, spooky and unique. I mostly love being by the beach, especially in Cornwall where I spend most of my Summers. My perfect day out would have to be either something seriously spooky like a ghost tour, chilling out on the beach or exploring a stately home!
