Travelling is in the blood. My parents were refugees and covered half the world in their escapes from tyrannical regimes and war during the 1940s. I started to travel solo at the age of 5, and once I was old enough to continue without the police's interest there was no stopping me. 75 (ish) countries to date, and many close shaves, exciting adventures and wonderful people met along the way. Now writing about travel is my work, and will always aim to travel more than I have time to write about.
