I have been wandering the world since I was old enough to walk. My parents used to take me on grand tours of Europe by car and when I flew the nest I literally started flying to far flung corners of the globe. I have backpacked through SE Asia, overlanded through East and Southern Africa, and hiked in the footsteps of great European explorers and adventurers.
For many years I was paid to travel but this meant sticking to a pre-planned itinerary and being followed by a dozen or more paying tourists. Now I travel for my own pleasure and mostly on my own. This means I have to interact with the local people, learning more about their cultures.
I love Africa and the last few years I have ventured through Zambia, Malawi and Uganda. You can read about my African adventures at African Nomad.
One of the most satisfying reasons for travelling is to try new food and drink. The main reason for my tour of Europe by motorhome is to find great gastronomic experiences and to learn more about the regional delicacies. I’m hoping to discover some interesting recipes along the way.
