This upbringing has instilled in the author a hard-to-slake desire to be constantly on the move and to seek out, explore and live in an immersive way amongst unknown peoples and cultures.

    All through his life – and in all the countries he has lived in – he has seeked out adventure in the wilderness: the jungles and forests of India, South America and Africa, the rough mountainous terrains across continents, and the deserts of the Middle East.
