One thing I want to do before I die
Travelpod says I've visited 71 countries of the world. Eight or ten of those have been cruise ship stops so they don't count. There are 196 countries in the world. If I could hit half of them I'd be happy.
Favourite book
Alan Furst, Elmore Leonard and Mary Lawson. They're all quite different from one another.
My friends describe me as
The guy who wants to see half the countries of the world
The most amazing moment in my life so far
Visiting the temples of Bagan at sunrise. Prior to that my most amazing moment was visiting Bagan at sunset - the night previous.
