Travel is one of my great passions in life. I have been fortunate to visit some interesting places, from a ghost town in Namibia where the sand dunes have swept into the old homes, to the largest firefly colony in the world near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Travel writing is tricky, however. Unfortunately, cliches abound in this genre – possibly more so than in any other (well, excepting maybe sport). But I have recently begun to explore the possibility of channeling some of my love of travel into short features, and I am grateful to Caroline Hurry at Travel Write for providing me with a platform. Here are some of the blog posts I have shared:
- Swaziland Gifts: on hitting the craft trails in the Southern Hemisphere’s smallest country.
- Mediterranean Malta: on exploring historical Malta and musing on its lack of bird life.
- Charmed by Chiang Mai: on embalmed monks and elephants in Thailand’s northern regions.
