Peter MooreHello. My name is Peter Moore. I’m an author and I travel.

I’ve  been wandering the world since a life-altering encounter with the Big Nambas of Vanuatu, age 19. The Big Nambas wear nowt but a strategically wrapped red cloth. Some things never leave you. Never.

I’ve travelled overland from London to Sydney and made my way from Cape Town to Cairo by any means possible. I bought an old Vespa and rode it around Italy, twice.

Once I travelled around Central America with a girl I’d only just met.

In the process I’ve visited 102 countries, written six books and learned that the world may be a crazy place but default setting of human kind is ‘Good.’

Welcome to my website.
