Bio

I made the effort to visit all the UN member countries in just 8 years, 1999-2007, while based in London. Now I have relocated to Asia, and prefer re-visiting the nice places rather than ticking more boxes on these lists, although some of the Series are quite intriguing. Of course if a new country is born, such as South Sudan, I will be among the first to pay a visit (as I did in Sep 2011). I have spilled the beans about my travel history in full in the book Chasing 193 and have little to add to that interview
