Banner for John P - Travel Writing and Photography

Thanks for taking the time to drop by. I hope you find your visit useful and enjoyable. Here you find a variety of articles ranging from miniguides to more general travel pieces many with accompanying photographs. I update miniguides frequently so if you find something that has changed please let me know.

This site is also a showcase for my writing and photography if anyone is looking for pieces to publish or wants to commission a new story. At the moment I have a stock of articles and photography on Life and travel in Libya and India’s major Buddhist sites.

I hope the contents prove interesting and useful to everyone else whether you are a traveller on the road and looking for some information or whether you prefer to travel inside your own head. Most of the articles have been published in one form or another but others were written for the pleasure of writing and could even be for sale— to the right person. Even writers have to eat you know.

I've organized the articles by country and clicking on the country names will reveal a list of articles. At the moment the regions are mostly in South-east Asia and include Thailand, Laos and malaysia. The longer stories have now been split over several pages to cut down on scrolling and a contents section allows you to navigate directly to other pages.

Enjoy your visit.

The feet of the wanderer are like the flower, his soul is growing and reaping the fruit; and all his sins are destroyed by his fatiques in wandering.
Therefore, wander!
The fortune of him who is sitting, sits; it rises when he rises; it sleeps when he sleeps; it moves when he moves
Therefore wander!
