The line between my life as a writer and a wanderer is becoming blurred. This is the digital manifestation of a physical, spiritual, and intellectual journey.
I was born in Oxford in 1995, growing up in Oxfordshire. I eventually moved up north to complete my degree in Politics and Philosophy at the University of Sheffield.
It was shortly after graduating that I decided to forge my own path through life. I chose to earn my living from my passion: exploring people, places, and ideas. This is what I mean by merging writing with wandering.
My career as a professional writer began at the end of 2016, shortly after graduating and failing to find a “real job”. I took freelance writing gigs and realised this was the realest job I could have. Even better, I could do it from anywhere.
I created this website during the 2020 pandemic. I’d been based as a travel writer and photographer in Ghana with Projects Abroad. As Coronavirus spread, I was sadly forced to return to the UK and immediately placed into lockdown.
Luckily, I had more than three years of hard travel under my belt. During that time, I learned a great deal – not least that travel can be difficult and unsustainable. While in quarantine, it was time to become reflective about my travel habits. When I return to global exploration, how can I travel better?
This website is an exploration of journeys taken and lessons learned; of people, places, and ideas. Let’s travel better.
