Hey, I’m Loons – welcome to my blog.
I love writing about travel, stories of human connection, memoirs and generally on topics I find interesting and inspiring. I’m a keen traveller and have been to five continents, lived on three of them, yet still have an intense wanderlust to see more of the world unfold and observe and write about its remarkable people and places.
I’m currently in the middle of writing a novel-length series of posts called Letters from the Heart of Africa based on my six months as a volunteer at the Genocide Memorial Centre in Rwanda.
I now live just two miles from where I was born in London, with my wife Sarah, a cat (which I used to loathe but now love) and a tiny tank of all-male fish, some of whom have given birth. The world never ceases to amaze me.
I love reading other people’s blogs, I tend to look beyond spelling and grammar to search for feelings, authenticity and storyline.
Thanks for your interest in my blog, I’m sincerely flattered. Stay tuned!
