A funny way of looking at the world

Hello. My name is Peter Moore and I’m an author who writes about travel.

The picture above is quite old now. It was taken in the back blocks of Tanzania, somewhere out towards the border with Rwanda. I’ve got a lot less hair now, but it sums up perfectly everything I love about travel.

I’m still searching for places that are authentic and a little bit different. No floaty sundresses or hipster beards here.

Just the world in all its tarnished glory.

    A bit of pagan revelry beside the English seaside One of the things that always fascinated me about England was the remnants of pagan history around the country.

    History, wild places and meals that will stop you in your tracks, Europe’s newest country packs quite a punch. And that’s before you get started on the local raki. By my third day in Kosovo, I began to suspect that my arrival in each town was being preceded by that of a representative of the…
