Hello. Welcome to my blog. Here you will find a sample of my memoir, Our Side of the House, which is about growing up in a seaside boarding house in Northern Ireland at the height of the Troubles; links to the travel books I have edited; and an occasionally updated list of travel articles I have written for The Daily Telegraph.
You’ll also find postings on other things that catch my eye or ear, from the work of the young Bangladeshi photographer GMB Akash to the albums of James Hunter and The Duke and the King. Have a look, too, at my page on the Telegraph website.
