My name is Brian Hancill and I am a British journalist who has been writing occasional travel articles since the mid-1990s. An alternative subtitle for this blog could be “two decades of shameless freeloading”.
One day I might get round to organising and scanning my own pictures from these trips but for the moment the earlier articles on this blog borrow images from around the web. If any copyright holder objects or wants a credit please get in touch.
Prices and contact details quoted have not been updated and in the earliest articles are wildly out of date. In some cases, web links to the places mentioned have been added.
Also, this is a personal site which has no connection to Mirror Group Newspapers or The Spectator magazine.
I also have a music blog with live reviews and random musings. Click the logo below if you want to go there.
