An Accidental Londoner Abroad

After four years of pretty much exclusively London-based blogging, I'm pleased to announce a new Accidental series: An Accidental Londoner Abroad.  Since I've been in London, the city has become my base-camp for undertaking all manner of travels around the rest of the world.  And wherever I go my notebook comes too.  I am not a big fan of souvenir-buying when I visit a new place, instead I collect tickets, take photos and write about the things I have seen.  With a new job begun last year have come exceptional opportunities for exploring more of the world, so from time to time I will be publishing a few pieces about distinctly un-London-y things here.  I hope my readers will indulge me in this!   

To make it easier to separate out my non-London writing and thoughts from what will still remain the majority of my blog's content, I've recently added a new page - which I will keep updating as I write more - which pulls together much of my recent travel-writing.  It's a little different from the rest of the blog, but I hope it's still interesting for those who come across it.  And if you fancy checking it out (which I highly recommend you do!), you can find it here and in the pages list underneath my profile on the right-hand side of my homepage.

  1. Ooh i'm excited to read about your adventures. I always keep a little notebook full of things when i go away, i find that when i look back over all the things i've stuck in, written or photographed- the memories come straight back. It really is a great way to remember going abroad.

    1. Glad it's not just me, Twad'dler. I'd rather have notebooks and photos than fridge-magnets and souvenir t-shirts any day!

  2. Yeah most touristy souvenier stuff is horrid apart from in India where a lot of it is really lovely and handmade and I ended up filling two suitcases full of embroidered bedspreads, Ganesh statues etc
