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 / Tony In the Indian Ocean! (1st May 2019)Dear all, happy May-day. I’m good, relaxing in the small French island of Mayotte, located somewhere in the Indian Ocean! It’s another tropical and humid day here. I arrived from Reunion yesterday evening, only to be greted by warm, tropical rain – such is life for a traveller! I’m relaxing on a nice terrace in a delightful, peaceful Airbnb. No couchsurfers could or wanted to host me, so, Airbnb it is! I’m here until Sunday, when I fly to the Comoro Islands and country 122 on the UN list of nations. Read more →

Blog post / In Ethiopia again. (16th April 2019)
I’m currently travelling around fascinating and wonderful Ethiopia with its ancient history and religious cultures, both Christian and Muslim. Before Ethiopia, I was in Egypt, Sudan, Eritrea and Djibouti. I crossed overland from Djibouti City to Harar in East Ethiopia, where I spent a couple days exploring the old, medieval Islamic walled town – the fourth most important destination in Muslim culture and history. Eventually, a loong 11 hour coach journey brought me to Addis Ababa,Read more →

Video – Pyramid of Userkaf, Saqqara, Egypt (4th March 2019)
Tony walking through a low and narrow passage leading from the tomb inside the Pyramid of Userkaf, to the outside. The large burial chamber is located at Saqqara, ancient Necropolis of Memphis, on the west bank of the River Nile, south of Cairo. The tomb is empty, but carvings are visible on the inner walls. A steep slope leads downwards from the entrance at a steep angle into the tomb.
