Travels in Madeira for Gotta Keep Movin’

A few months back my very first travel article was published on the pages of A Year in Portugal – a travel journal by year-round globetrotters Gotta Keep Movin’. I reckon this was one of my best articles of the year, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to pester you all about it here.


This was a bit of a tome by my standards, spanning eight pages and covering, amongst other things, levada-walking, fado music, naranjada and Madeiran wall lizards.

If you fancy reading it, you can buy a copy of A Year in Portugal here. There’s an extended preview of the article at the GKM website, for the benefit of those of you who are on the fence.

I’ve developed a bit of a taste for this travel-writing lark. If you work in travel PR and would like to collaborate on an article, please get in touch.

Guardian Global Development Article on the Ohangwena II Aquifer

I was fortunate enough to report on something quite historic this summer: the development of Namibia’s vast Ohangwena II aquifer into a working water supply.

If carefully managed, the aquifer could provide a backup water supply to northern Namibia for hundreds of years, or even longer.

I interviewed the lead groundwater hydrologist on the project, Martin Quinger, for The Guardian’s Global Development section.

‘Building Digital Culture’ Launch at Twitter UK’s HQ

In all honesty, when I started writing this post, Tweets were still capped at 140 characters.

Never mind – it’s worth telling you about anyway.

One of my long-term clients, Target Internet, celebrated a landmark occasion this February: the publication of their founder’s new digital marketing book, Building Digital Culture.

I headed down to Twitter HQ to write about the book’s launch party, which featured a speech from Twitter UK’s Managing Director, Dara Nasr.
