This website hosts a collection of stories, commentary on life in general, and photographs from my journeys around the world. I've journeyed overland across the Pan-American, London to Sydney, and weird-ass places like North Korea, Iran and Wales, and these stories will be intertwined with my regular blog as I muddle through life. I hope you enjoy my yarns!
After taking photos for years, I thought I'd start writing about it properly. First post up and running!

Tea & Biscuit Addiction
If you like what you read (and even if you don't!) and fancy helping fund my tea & biscuit addiction any donations would be much appreciated!
After years of toiling I published my magnum opus(ish)! This is the true story of two friends embarking on a year-long adventure of comedic ineptitude, driving across half the world in a modified Land Rover Ambulance raising money for the charity, ActionAid. Our trip would take us skipping through the riches of Europe and Turkey, across incredible Iran and Pakistan, journeying up through the hysterical humidity of India to the coolness of Nepal and the Himalayas of Tibet, before arrowing down through South-East Asia towards our final destination of Australia. On the way we’d be molested by men, chased, ruin a perfectly good balcony, bribe the police, hide in an Army Base, get molested by men again, get propositioned, get robbed, have the privilege to view some fantastic charity work, smoke Afghan marijuana, ride elephants (unrelated to the last point), almost kill a wedding party, and break down nigh on a hundred times. And get propositioned again. Hopefully that sounds like a tale worth reading, but if you’re still undecided, let me assure you that the second week was even worse!
You can purchase at Smashwords on this link or you can grab it from Barnes&Noble, Amazon, Kobo, iBooks etc
Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum sonatur...or in English "whatever one says in Latin sounds profound". Quite. Unfortunately my stories are in English.
New Photography blog. These are not just photographs, darling, these are windows to our very essence!
