Grant Cheyne was born in Adelaide Australia in 1960, the same year that television came to town. He lived a typical and content suburban life on the northern fringe of the city before pursuing an education in Architecture at The University of Adelaide. Mid-way through the five year course he decided to purchase a one way plane ticket to London and there was no going back.
He currently lives in Sydney although all his belongings are in storage and complete strangers live in the home he purchased less that a year earlier.
After frequent encouragement he now downloads his particular view of the world one of his close friends describes as `Planet Grant`. The book "Travelling Light : thinking more about it", was conceived in Chicago, outlined in Melbourne and written in the cafes (with very uncomfortable seats) of Hanoi and Koh Chang, in a very tiny notebook.
