I'm a freelance travel writer, journalist and photographer who suffers from a severe - and probably incurable - case of wanderlust. After getting a 2:1 BA (Hons) multi-media journalism degree on the (occasionally) sunny south coast of England, I spent six years honing my trade in regional newspapers - in news and sport, writing and subbing - before embarking on an incredibly life-changing round-the-world trip in 2005. Since this adventure - which included stints living and working in Perth and Sydney and doing the classic backpacking trail up the Australian east coast - I haven't had a 'real job' as such. But I have visited, photographed and written about over 80 countries across Europe, the Caribbean, the Americas, Asia, Africa and Oceania, contributing to dozens of publications, both print and online, in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and the USA. Outlets include the Sydney Morning Herald, Sydney Sun-Herald, Virgin Voyeur, Travel & Living, the West Australian, International Traveller, Vacations & Travel, New Zealand Herald, ninemsn travel, Sunday Times (UK) and the Daily and Sunday Express (UK).
