Read more about Tony.
I have written and published two Ebooks about my world adventures.
Seeing The World My Way
Published in 2010 and re-published as an Ebook in 2017.
Seeing The Americas My Way
Ebook published September 2016.
My ebooks are travel biographies of the observations and experiences of a blind man as he travels around the world having crazy adventures. The first instalment, Seeing the World My Way, describes my early journeys: out for adventure but consumed by alcohol as a method for dealing with my disabilities.
My second ebook, Seeing the Americas My Way, is a more sober, yet more emotional tale. It highlights my challenges of confronting personal issues whilst travelling.

BBC Travel Show part 2 reminder (14th June 2019)
A reminder that the second part of Tony’s BBC Travel Show documentary will be shown this weekend.
In the second part of a Travel Show special from Ethiopia, Tony Giles, a blind and almost deaf backpacker, visits Lalibela, the cradle of Christian orthodox Christianity in Africa. He visits the world – famous rock hewn underground churches and gets the chance to take part in a colourful and moving Orthodox lent service. It is here that Tony begins his own spiritual journey, questioning his own disability and why his own lack of sight and sound has driven him to travel the world.

More updates for Tony’s Ethiopia documentary (7th June 2019)
More information about my up and coming travel documentary with a little taster to grab your interest :).
Good afternoon from the Travel Show The Travel Show has a lovely video which you might be interested in promoting. Tony Giles, who is completely blind and severely deaf, is backpacking independently around the world and has visited more than 120 countries. On his travels around Ethiopia he visits a studio containing paintings which were part of a wider exhibition designed for blind and partially sighted people to experience through touch. Tony says: “So many times you go to art galleries with friends and you sort of feel excluded, but touching this art made me feel included… its art I can appreciate. I felt equal.” https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/disability-48530433/touching-paintings-i-feel-included-in-art
Showing on BBC World News Friday 7 June (21:30 GMT), Saturday 8 (02:30) and Sunday 9 (04:30).
