Lucky enough to do this for a living (almost!). I'm a Silkman (from Macclesfield, UK) and a SilkRoadster (Silk Road traveller) and I write for Trailblazer (The Silk Roads, see link below), AA, Wanderlust and the like. I've also recently edited a new guide to the Great Himalaya Trail.
Last but not least, I'm the author of The Alphabet Game, a satirical novel on the travel-writing game, pastiching the world of LP and the like. It also traces the history of Travel's Ultimate Challenge - The Alphabet Game itself (a century-old forerunner to MTP, in fact).
Hopefully, I'll be giving MTP members an exclusive sneak peak as it should tickle at least a few taste-buds. TBA
