This journal is a place to record my travels and the adventures along the way. It doesn't get updated all that often, but I'm gratified to see that quite a lot of people do seem to read it.
I have travelled in Europe, Asia, North America and the Middle East but my principle love is sub-Saharan Africa. From the moment I first set foot there in 2004 (Kenya) I fell completely and utterly in love with the place. I feel very much as if I have left a piece of my heart here and I have to keep returning. As I write these words I not only have travelled through ten African countries from Ethiopia in the north to South Africa, but am now living and working in one of them. There are also many, many more new places to see...
Comments and suggestions are encouraged, and indeed, deeply appreciated, but I may not always be able to respond quickly.
I prefer doing things myself - truly independent travel, i.e. me, plus a guide book, plus whatever transport I can find at the time. In general, I rarely know where I'm going until I get there and even the guide book is optional.
