The above are my recent blogs.

You will find my journals describing how I wandered in the ancient temples of Japan, cycled in Sri Lanka, travelled on the Trans-Siberian Railway, survived an Ayurveda retreat in India and how I was brave enough to take a sabbatical to get my life back together.

Want articles from me?

I’ve had travel and lifestyle articles published in numerous places. You can request new copy from me.

It can be anything from ‘joyful journeys’ – being the only passenger crossing the Pacific Ocean on a container ship or giving donated football kit to street children in Ghana; to ‘mind, body and spirit’ – being treated by a shamanic healer on the equatorial island of São Tomé; or on ‘the power of change’ – coming to terms with marriage again or living life to the full by slowing down.
