Travelling behind the guidebooks & headlines by linking good research to good travel.

Using my own travels and experiences as a starting point, I’ll use this blog to highlight research which helped me understand the countries I’ve visited in longer Travel Reflections and give some shorter, practical Travel Tips, too.  If you want to find out more about me, do take a look at the About page which includes a profile and some details about my research.

In some sections there are links to for accommodation tips I’ve made and to Amazon for tips to do with books, music & other items which helped enhance my travels.  If you chose to book or buy any of these recommendations, do consider using these links as they include a slight income for me at no cost to you which helps towards the running costs of this blog.

Finally, if you want to get in touch – do leave a comment, use the Contact page (where you can also sign up to receive email updates when I publish a new post) or visit my twitter, instagram or the facebook group.
