All these places that I’ve been

Whether you’re looking for evidence of my claim to be a seasoned traveller, or if you’d like to commission me for an article on any of these destinations, check out the places I’ve been lucky enough to go to. I’ve sorted by world region or continent, then country and town, county or place of interest. I’ve linked to articles I’ve written about each, too, on this or other travel websites.
