Welcome, Marhaba, Ahlan wa Sahlan, Selamat Datang…

This blog showcases my travel writing and photography, and shares experiences, images and anecdotes more frankly – and more immediately – than commercial print media allow.

My independent travels began in 1960s Tasmania, then took off with the Seventies Asian overland thing – now they call it a gap year – a consular posting in the United Arab Emirates and a stint as an adventure tour guide in South East Asia.
I’ve been locked in the medieval town hall tower of Tallinn, Estonia and stranded by monsoon rains in rural Malaysia, had my pocket picked in Naples and was detained by Soviet-era border guards in Czechoslovakia – and wouldn’t have missed any of it (well, almost).
Based in Melbourne, I am a Member of the Australian Society of Travel Writers and a founding member of the Global Travel Writers’ Syndicate. My articles and images have been published in 35 countries.

Enough of business…  I hope to engage with some of you out there who share my passion for travel off the beaten track.
