I’m a freelance journalist, travel writer and arthritic adventurist who’d like to high-five the person who invented full-suspension mountain bikes.
My articles and photographs have been published in national newspapers and magazines in the UK, US and Australia.
I studied journalism and media law at the London School of Journalism and I specialise in stories about off-track travel, adventure and living expat. You can have a mooch at a few published clips or if you would like me to write an article for your publication or business, please contact me here.
Venturing into post-conflict Afghanistan to join a pioneering expedition across the Pamir Mountains is among my top unforgettable experiences.
It was up there with having my smalls rummaged through with the muzzle of a Kalashnikov, sleeping in a swag next to a croc-infested billabong and squatting behind an inadequate rock with a curious audience.
The fact that I had almost completed Australia’s longest off-road bike trail when I got sidetracked by an award-winning bottle of Shiraz reveals my weak yet classy streak and demonstrates I won’t turn my nose up at a luxury assignment.
I like to fly in style – by the seat of my pants – so I don’t always know what I’m up to next but I occasionally blog about my escapades on this website. If you’d like to be kept updated, click here to shoot me your email …. I respect your privacy and I’ll never spam, share or sell your email. Seriously, those people need to get out more, don’t they?
And if that’s you Richard Branson, yes, of course i’ll write for Virgin. Let’s discuss it in space. Tweet me @TraceyCroke
