Travel Writer, Walking, hill walking and road cycling
North West of England, Scotland and mainland Europe
I am a travel writer specialising in writing about UK and mainland Europe trips in my blue campervan; always walking or cycling, my writing often has a historical or literary theme. Since 2011 I have written for the motorhome magazine MMM and more recently for Campervan Magazine.
In addition I write two blogs; one focuses on life as a travel writer and campervan owner, the second travels the UK one memorial bench at a time.
I have been writing since 2009; in those early years I wrote a blog about our campervan travels for family and friends but since 2011 I have been a published writer. I own a campervan and my writing concentrates on active trips that generally include hill walking and cycling. My articles are regularly published in MMM (The Motorhomer’s Magazine) and Campervan Magazine (15 articles published in 2019).
I travel in the UK, particularly the Lake District and Scotland and around the North-West of England where I live. I also travel to mainland Europe, including trips to Spain, Portugal, Greece and the Alps, always exploring the fantastic opportunities for walking and cycling as well as the history and culture and I enjoy weaving a travelling story around historical events.
MMM February 2020 – Halifax & Saltaire, West Yorkshire: When it’s cold outside, nothing beats the warmth of West Yorkshire’s wonderful food and friendliness.
In addition I write two blogs.
Back on the Road Again Blog has light-hearted and thoughtful posts about my travel experiences and life with a blue campervan.
Memorial Bench Stories tells the stories of the people and places behind memorial benches I have found and photographed. This blog was recently featured by BBC Radio Four on their website and on the PM programme.
In 2018 I was the winner of the Douglas King Award for written journalism from the Caravan Writers Guild. My winning article was about a November trip to Argyll in Scotland.
