Philip who?


My independent travels began as a schoolboy in 1960s Tasmania, then took off with the Asian overland thing in '74 - now they call it a gap year - a consular posting in the Arabian Gulf and a stint as an adventure tour guide in South East Asia. Later, I survived thirteen months branded as a 'resident alien' in small-town Pennsylvania and then spent six months hiding from Britain's remorseless TV licence inspectors.

I've been locked in the medieval town hall tower of Tallinn, Estonia and stranded by monsoon rains in rural Malaysia, had my pocket picked in Naples and was detained by Soviet-era border guards - and wouldn't have missed any of it (well, almost).

I am an accredited Member of the Australian Society of Travel Writers. My articles and images have been published in 35 countries and my special interests include South East Asia, the Indian Sub-Continent and the Arabian Gulf, the Australian Outback; and now perhaps South America. Out-of-the-loop island nations and half-forgotten territories are special favourites.
