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.
Blog post / Another American trip (13th February 2009)
Revisiting AmericaAnother journey to the US occurred over the Christmas and New Year of 2002–2003. I was a third of the way through my Master’s degree at Birmingham University, England, had just finished an essay and was exhausted. I should have gone home, but not a huge fan of Christmas, I opted for three weeks in America instead. As a student, I managed to obtain a relatively inexpensive flight and was able to get a month Greyhound pass, Read more →

Blog post / A special secret story! (8th February 2009)
The wandering albatross is one of the worlds’ amazing species. It lives among the islands of the Southern Ocean ‘Antarctic Ocean’, leaving its home annually, sleeping on the wind. It soars through the air, its vast wing span enabling it to fly for months, hunting for seafood seeming to be beyond the parallels of lesser creatures such as humans. It flies in solitude, sleeping when necessary and only returning home to mate and recharge its batteries ready for the next adventure.Read more →
Blog post / All travellers (6th February 2009)
Hay all, its Tonythetraveller saying hi and Happy New Year. I am out of hospital after my successful kidney transplant from my Step Dad. We are both doing fine.
I am back living in my flat by the sea in Devon. I am getting stronger each day and soon hope to be on less medications. Unfortunately, I will not be going anywhere far until the end of April. Then it will only be round the UK and Northern Europe.

Blog post / End of the road for now! (24th November 2008)
Hi all, its Tonythetraveller letting you know I have just finished travelling for now . I am back in the UK awaiting news of whether I can receive a kidney from my Step Dad. Just a few more tests before I know one way or the other. Either way it means I’m off the road until I get a new kidney. It could be the end of this year or the beginning of next year.Read more →

This is from a friend named Jeff, a seasoned traveller. Enjoy
Greetings All !!
I have finally found the opportunity to spend a couple of hours in front of a computer and report on the trip so far.
First problem came at Heathrow when I found that my flight with Thai Airways to Bangkok had been cancelled. They transferred me to a Qantas flight, but they wouldn’t honour the extra 10 kgs.Read more →
