I took my first solo trip around Europe when I was seventeen, and I've been travelling and writing professionally since I published my first travel guide - to Scandinavia - in 1988. Since then I've eaten a puffin in Iceland, got stuck up a mountain in the Lake District, crash-landed in Iran, fallen off a husky sled in Canada, and got stranded on a Mediterranean island. Not all of those things were my fault. You can read about my travelling life in my memoir, Takoradi to the Stars (via Huddersfield).
I wrote Rough Guide travel books for over thirty years, but now that I no longer have to copy down bus timetables for a living I don't really know what to do with myself. So I come up with ridiculous ideas for trips and then write about them, which is where my 9-city, 9-day, 9-country trip came from - that's covered in Not Cool: Europe by Train in a Heatwave.
