Driving liberates you by enabling you to get across large distances at your own pace, stopping anywhere or everywhere.

From a very young age, cars have fascinated me, not only for the joy of being behind the wheel, in control of a machine and the mobility it brings, but also because a car is a “bridge” in itself – a passage, to places often inaccessible to any other means of transport; new cities; meeting different people and getting an outsider’s peep into life around the world.

The drives over the last 35 years have come together as a result of dreaming, passion and having the right people with me along the many journeys I’ve been privileged to undertake across more than 50 countries and four continents.

Enjoy my stories!
