Travel (the "rest")

I'm addicted to travelling... there, I've admitted it!!

Travelling is not just about sun and lazing on a beach (though I’m not knocking that!), instead I realised by doing it, that it is about the people you meet and engaging with other cultures. It is about finding out about how the world really works and learning just as much about yourself as it is learning about others…

I also believe that photographing what you see, where you go and who you meet is so important as it helps you to remember, share your experiences and show others parts of the world they may not have seen before. That's why I started a travel blog which allows me to take a retrospective look back at the experiences I've had along the way - check out my travel blog!

So where have I been?

I'm fast becoming a seasoned traveller and I like going to off the beaten path places, particularly in central Asia and the Middle East. Take a deep breath...

China, Egypt, Greece, India, Iran, Ireland, Japan, Jordan, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Morocco, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Scotland, Spain, Sudan, Syria, Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, United States, Uzbekistan, Vietnam
