Upcoming events

◄ Stupid me, I broke my ankle. Which has considerably curtailed my travels starting with cancelling the National Geographic Explorer trip I should have been making to the Norwegian Arctic island of Svalbard.

Startup Grind
I will be speaking at Startup Grind’s Europe Conference on Wednesday 13 June at Central Hall Westminster, London. I’ll include my 2017 journey along the Silk Road from Bangkok to London (via China and 4 of the 5 ex-Soviet ‘stans) in an elderly MGB.






Before that I’m doing an AMA – Ask Me Anything – on Reddit – 5pm USA East Coast time on Thursday 31 May.






My Svalbard Arctic trip is still going to happen as well, just in one year’s time. 

▲ The National Geographic Explorer

Land of the Ice Bears: An In-depth Expedition to Arctic Svalbard
6-16 June 2019 Maureen and I will be on the ship National Geographic Explorer exploring this polar outpost and I’ll be talking travel and about Global Heritage Fund, my archaeological connection. If you want to join in check the Lindblad website for the full story.
