About Martin Stevenson

Originally from Cambridge, England, I am a journalist, freelance travel writer, author of ‘More than footprints - How backpacking lost its way, and editor of its sister site’.

Following a war of attrition between several gap-years and a degree in South Asian Studies and Comparative Religion at the School of Oriental and African Studies, I worked in financial public relations in London and taught MBA courses at ESSEC business school in Paris. I have spent the last three years in Southeast Asia researching and writing ‘More than footprints: How backpacking lost its way’. I plan to head back to England the moment it stops raining.
