Not Here Not Here

I started my blog in December 2014, as a way of sharing two of my biggest passions: writing and travel. My aim is to paint a picture of some of the places I’ve been, provide useful information where I can, and share my opinions when I think they’re worth sharing.

Over the years I have increasingly found myself drawn to the offbeat, the unusual and the weird when it comes to travel, and lately I’ve become particularly interested in the former Soviet Union and the old communist bloc. Recent journeys have taken me to South East Asia, the Balkans and Uzbekistan, and I’m currently trying to decide which country on my ever growing travel to-do list I’m going to visit next.
