Serious travel blogs?
What’s that supposed to mean?
Well, I guess it means ‘serious’ in the sense of exploring the issues which I’m inevitably confronted with when I travel. I’m an issues person and I´m also a sceptic, never taking anything at its face value.
One of my great passions is to meet strangers and hear their stories. To question them, to dig deep. At the same time, travel encourages me to be introspective about my own cultural background.
My travelling began as a child when my father was in the Royal Australian Air Force and was continually on the move, from Europe and the Mediterranean to remote places in Australia.
But it really took off after I met my Dutch partner Anya in Indonesia and we began trekking in the Indian Himalaya together.
