Journalist, producer and media consultant based in Spain working for UK press. My focus here is safe travel and the tourism industry. I also cover current affairs, business, architecture and rural regeneration, and work / have worked for The Guardian, BBC, FT, The Times, Conde Nast Traveller, Business Life, Reader's Digest, Evening Standard.
Ten reminders that the best travel experience are often the cheapest (luckily), just as long as you’re not in a hurry. I recommended the Sabalito border crossing, Costa Rica to Panama (although the map here shows a random road petering out at one of the ubiquitous San Rafaels), a route that involves an old US school bus, waiting for the border official to finish lunch, a trip through nowhere-in-particular settlements of wooden houses painted turquoise & wreathed in orchids, where life is slow . . like the transport. Full ride and 9 other inspiring public transport recommendations at The Guardian.
