Hold the Dog! 16 Days in Mongolia
(50% of proceeds to Mongolian charities)
In 2005 my partner Christiane and I found ourselves, almost by accident, in Mongolia. We were midway through The Big Trip East, which was supposed to be all about China, Russia and the Trans-Siberian Railway. But as the years went by and other memories faded, it was the 16 unscheduled days in Mongolia that stayed in my mind.
In 2010, having contemplated the idea for years, I decided to commit the memories to paper. The result is an ebook, entitled "Hold the Dog!: 16 Days in Mongolia". It is available in various digital forms via any of the links below, and 50% of the proceeds will be split between two Mongolian charities: CAMDA and the Yamaa Trust.
I was born in 1975 in Rochdale, UK, where I grew up. In 1993 I left to go to university in Bath, and remained in the south of England until 2001, when I returned to the north-west to live in Manchester. I stayed in Manchester, apart from The Big Trips East and West, until 2007. Since then I have been living in London with my partner Christiane. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
