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 / Still in Palermo! (1st October 2018)

I’ve been in Palermo, capital of Sicily, the large island off the boot of Italy for 6 days now, waiting for a ferry to Tunisia! I was supposed to leave on Saturday, but missed the boat, getting lost whilst attempting to find a bus stop on a quiet street in the centre and struggling because of not possessing any Italian! Therefor I’ve spent the last two days moving from one small hostel on Via Lincoln to a large property on the other side of the city on Via Dante!

London Big Bus Tour video (4th September 2018)

Tony interviewed on a ‘Big Bus’ in London for World Travel Market:

More whales (15th August 2018)


This is my last video of humpback whales swimming and blowing in waters off Ilulissat, northwest Greenland, a truly magical experience. A reason for anyone to fly to Greenland.


Despite the noise of the engine, whales breaching can clearly be heard and, hopefully, seen! The sound of humpback whales blowing is magnificent.


More whales and now less sounds, no boat engine and no planes, pure bliss, apart from occasional cameras and slight commentary.

Searching for whales in Greenland (14th August 2018)


Trying to search for whales? A slightly unsuccessful beginning with the camera! The following films are better!


Here come the whales! First video with the humpbacks blowing and swimming, some interesting commentary alongside!


Here are the humpbacks in all their glory :)


Boat, plane and whales! The sound of the boat, the majestic silence of the whales and the noise of a plane – all captured in the nature off Ilulissat.
