Writer and editor for Lonely Planet, based in London after a decade working at Melbourne's Footscray HQ.
I prefer to take my time on the road and stay as long as life will allow me so I can to really soak up a new destination.
I love old maps, old instruction manuals and old postcards with messages on them. I can't walk past a car-boot sale without having a nose around.
In recent years I have added two extra companions to many of my travel adventures. My kids have learned the fine art of the feigned indifferent price inquiry, at least our travels have taught them something useful.
Solo travel, budget travel, travel with children
Bangkok, Wales, and Australia's outback.
