Round The World and other travels

A frequent flyer's collection of trip diaries


Welcome to this record of most of my travels since 2004, including complete trip diaries, flight logs, hotel reports, destination reports and lots of photos.

The site is organised into short trips and major trips, both of which are presented essentially in chronological order. Additionally, I have now included an index so that you can see at a glance where I've been and what I've written about.

"When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return."
Leonardo da Vinci
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."
Mark Twain
"To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive."
Robert Louis Stevenson
"For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move."
Robert Louis Stevenson
"I have wandered all my life, and I have travelled; the difference between the two is this: we wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfilment."
Hilaire Belloc
"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page."
St Augustine
"A traveller without observation is a bird without wings."
Moslih Eddin Saadi
"Travel only with thy equals or thy betters; if there are none, travel alone."
The Dhammapada
