I've been a pro travel writer for over 30 years – born in Africa, raised in the UK and living in places from Sicily and Portugal to Hong Kong and New Zealand. You might even have had one of my guidebooks along for the ride in your travel bag - in which case, happy to have helped!
I took my first solo trip around Europe when I was 17, and have been travelling and writing professionally since I published my first Rough Guide – to Scandinavia – in 1988. Since then I have written guides to Sicily, Hong Kong, Barcelona, Washington DC, Portugal, Spain and England, and contributed to many others. I've also written widely for newspapers, magazines, blogs and websites, and I'm a consultant for the best-of-UK-travel website Cool Places.
