Being on the road will probably be a bit lonely (although there will be times when I have to travel in convoy), and I can see how it could be depressing at times. Why not drop me an email and brighten my day? I will try to collect and send emails whenever possible.

About Me


I'm studying at University College London for my Ph.D, within the Geography Department. My work focuses on the Social and Economic Value of Earth Observation Data - typically, ways of assessing the usefulness of satellite images. I am in my second year.

I ride a Honda XR650L (2000) and a Honda RC31 Bros 650 (1989). In my spare time I like eating and sleeping, and I also have a go at off-roading. I worked as a courier for a while in London, and would consider bike handling and observation as my least weak points. I am the point of contact for sponsorship enquiries, press information, or other technical help. I maintain this website.

I attempt to speak French, Spanish and Arabic. During this trip I will use aerial photography and satellite imagery for navigation, with a view to sharing my maps upon my return (look here and here for examples). I like crisp mornings and good quality newspapers. Oh, and food. Lots of food. Often.

Legally bit...

In case you need to contact me about the site. Material presented herein is original text and photography. Please don't steal it! If I have unwittingly used something you own, drop me a line and I can either give you a proper credit or take your material down. OK Nicky - I come clean - I pinched a couple of Touratech promo shots, but I'm sure you don't mind....

A man with very good taste in travel destinations, and one of the few people who have been to (almost) all of the countries I am going to, also by bike. It was great to meet up in London and I am planning to use the notes I made!
