ABOUT JULIAN
about

Julian grew up riding a bicycle into neighbouring counties and then countries. In his mid twenties, having cycled a half dozen times across Europe to his second nation of Turkey, he broke a world record for a circumnavigation by bicycle – riding 18,049 miles through 20 countries in 169 days. He has won the UK’s Dolman travel writing award, for an account of a hitchhiked journey through middle America, and he has travelled by boat to remote islands in Asia, chronicling a world and people at the edge of modernity. Julian combines a background in political science to create a critically acclaimed travel writing style – politics at roadsides. In this way, and in writing and talks, he uses human stories and the perspective of travel to document global issues for a broad audience.
