Hi, I'm Abi and after all these years I'm still not sure how to start my introductions!
I'm a writer, blogger, photographer, speaker, TV host and explorer.
I've travelled to over 50 countries, though I only keep count when I need to write words like these.
In 2007, after five and a half years of working as a hospital doctor, I began to follow a different dream. The dream to "become a writer."
I had no idea what I was doing but trusted that if I followed the same path as I did with medicine (read, find experts, study, experience, enjoy and experiment) I'd get there in the end.
Today I work with Lonely Planet, National Geographic Traveler and Traveller (the spelling's different on either side of the pond) and many more. I've gone swimming with crocodiles, interviewed survivors from the Atom bomb, glided over deserts in hot air balloons and had a hot shower and hit the slick city scene of New York, Paris, Milan and Tokyo.
Life's usually interesting, sometimes challenging, occasionally painful and always alive.
Oh, and I also like the TV series Blackadder and marmite toast, buttered just right.
