I have three great enthusiasms- writing, photography and travel. Thus being a freelance travel writer and photographer and contributing to magazines and newspapers both in the UK and abroad seems to my friends hardly to be work, apart of course from the time spent in airports, in cataloguing my images or having to wait for hours for that special light in some remote landscape. I have in my past also been a soldier, a land agent and a farmer. My enthusiasm is for independent travel in the less visited places of the world. Deserts and jungles are very special to me but then so also is much of the UK, particularly my home county of Dorset. Why not read more about me on my website at www.johngaye.co.uk which also includes my blog.
