I have travelled extensively around Australia, driving through the outback from Melbourne to Cairns, and crossing from Sydney to the West Coast via Broken Hill, White Cliffs and across the Nullarbor. I spent months in a campervan researching and writing updates for Footprint’s West Coast Australia guidebook (4th edition, October 2011) in 2010/2011, which took me from Norseman to Broome. My travels inspired a number of articles which were published in The Independent, TNT Down Under, and Australia and New Zealand magazine. I also contributed to Footprint’s Perth Focus Guide (1st edition, November 2011), and more recently have updated the New South Wales chapter of The Rough Guide to Australia (due to publish April 2014).
In 2011, I worked on the new edition of Footprint’s Sri Lanka (5th edition, October 2011) and am currently writing a Sri Lanka guide for Dorling Kindersley, due to be published at the end of 2014. I have written about Sri Lanka for Thomas Cook Sport, and more recently for National Geographic Traveller (UK).
I lived in Luxembourg for many years and have contributed text to the Luxembourg Cityjet destination guide and to the easyJet Traveller magazine.
