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 / A Week in Austria (27th October 2018)

Tatiana and I have just spent a delightful week in Austria. First in Vienna where we attended the TEDx Vienna conference on Simplexity, where I gave a splendid talk on travelling blind. Tatiana came for the food! Then we headed to Graz, Austria’s second largest city in terms of population. Personally, I found it rather quiet. The 15th century cathedral was interesting and we listened to the choonful glockenspiel, chine its 24 bells three times daily.
