My world map, showing the air routes I've flown and the places I've visited. Photo My Bathroom Wall

I suppose most things for me start with travel. I lived in Los Angeles as a youngster, taught English in the Indian Himalaya, and have been travelling ever since. The above picture is my world map, showing the places I've been to so far, with black cotton indicating flight routes.

I make it 142 countries visited and 129 airlines flown on, but the number of countries is contentious of course, as it's tricky to decide which places are countries and which only territories etc.

What isn't in doubt though is my enthusiasm for travel. I keep abreast of travel news, write and give semiars about travel.

As for where the idea for mybathroomwall.co.uk came from; that is easily answered. The picture below is the real wall - strewn with framed photos that reflect my friends and interests.
