About me

With only a few years of independent travel experience under my belt, and having recently graduated from a Classics course at university, I'm currently trying to broaden my vista by travelling around as much of the world as possible, combining one great passion with another - going exotic places and then writing about them. I tend to most enjoy going to grubby, slightly edgy places with a rich cultural heritage, my favourite places of all being the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico and the central stretch of the Egyptian Nile, places where outstanding natural beauty combine with some of the most breathtaking ruins in the world, and cities like Gautemala City and La Paz, buzzing metropolises where danger supposedly lurks around every corner.
