I have been writing for a number of years now. I travelled round the world for a year and during this time I kept a diary recording all the places I visited. Whilst on this wonderful adventure I wrote about my experiences, about the food I ate, about the cultures, the languages, the people I met and their beliefs and customs. I journeyed on planes, boats, trains, buses, cars, motorbikes, tractors, canoes, rafts, helicopters, and even on the back of camels and elephants. I paraglided and I bungee jumped. I trekked to Machu Picchu. I watched tango in Buenos Aires. I picked cotton in Australia. I ate insects and fish eyes in Thailand. Every country had its own sparkle, its own distinctive piece of magic. Every day was different. Every day was a new mini adventure. This story is now being written in the Diary of a Backpacker series in the Travel section of my blog.
I write articles relating to translation. It is a subject that fascinates me. Previous work has included articles about CPD, the history of translation, translation theory and different approaches to translation, the difference between machine translation and human translation, using CAT tools as an aid to translation, and the future of the translation industry.
I also write about a range of other subjects that interest me or I have an opinion about. In the past I have written about; football, culture, my hometown Newcastle, living in Catalonia, the Industrial Revolution, baldness, the Spanish language, teaching, including a photo on a CV, blogging, living through the pandemic and running. Whilst my aim is to inspire and educate, I always attempt to inject a touch of humour into everything I write about in order to keep my readers entertained.
