Hey, I’m Des. That photo is of me when I was 23.
I started this blog just before I went away a few years ago, because on previous trips I’d forgotten what I’d done by the time I got home, and was hopeless at recounting stories.
But this blog has turned into more since then. I’m an actual paid writer now (yay!), and no longer a long term traveller. This blog’s now a nice, safe place for me to practice my writing and say those things that I want to say but don’t think anyone would actually publish anywhere.
I hope you enjoy reading some of what I’ve written! Feedback is always welcome (both good or bad) so please feel free to drop me a line and share your thoughts.
