For me travel is all about the pull of the unknown. I crave that feeling of anticipation, excitement and wonder that travelling to a new place brings. By plane, train, boat, chicken bus, horse, bicycle, or simply on my own two legs I have travelled widely in Asia and Africa in search of adventure but find myself drawn time after time to the Indian Subcontinent. For me no other region of the world offers such mystery, magic and mayhem. There is so much there waiting to be discovered. I travel just as much to learn about the world and the people that live in it as I do to find out what is around the next corner.

The place I would most like to return to?

Bhutan
