He was Deputy travel editor of the Daily Telegraph for thirteen years. He writes about places, culture, history and wildlife conservation and has won numerous awards and commendations  including UK Travel Journalist of the Year, Sunday Times Book of the Week, etc but comes across as a Good Bloke with a self-deprecating wit.
