Out now! The Lonely Planet Travel Anthology: True stories from the world’s best writers

This week two copies of the lovely The Lonely Planet Travel Anthology landed on my doormat this week – containing a short piece of writing by yours truly!

The book is now available to buy in various online bookstores… if you spot it in a real-life shop do let me know.

My piece of writing is a meditation on seaside recovery – about some time I spent learning to scuba dive in the Maldives using money I got in an insurance claim, after being hit by a car in 2008 and breaking both of my legs. You can read more about that part of my life in a blog I wrote at the time – From no boots to running shoes.

‘As you travel through these pages, may your mind be widened, your spirit enlivened, and your own path illuminated by these worldly word-journeys.’ —Don George
