ABOUT

I am a travel journalist, published author and blogger.

 

I write regularly for travel magazines, travel websites, newspapers, in-flight magazines, blogs and trade press.  

I am the author of five print city guides to Amsterdam, Berlin, Kassel, Leipzig and London. My sixth book is called Carl Goes London Islands, a journey along the River Thames, meeting the people who call the river's islands 'home'.

I work with hotels, tour operators and others in the travel industry, writing blogs, news and rich content to keep their customers engaged.

I’ve been writing professionally since 2004 and I’ve been travelling since long before that. I think travel keeps people open-minded. It helps us appreciate similarities and embrace differences. Not to mention the fact it's a lot of fun too!
