About @Keep Smiling

79 years old • Male • Retired travel executive

A former travel company executive (and a senior university administrator in later life). Now retired, I enjoy travel writing accompanied by photography of people, places and wildlife.

I'm an experienced, mature traveller - not a backpacker. So, I don't write about thumbing my way across the Sahara, slumming it in cockroach-infested hostels, or sharing a room with giant mosquitoes.

Oh, and I'm British - so you can expect a stiff upper lip in times of adversity and a sense of humour that's often not understood by others.

Keep Smiling!

  • Hobbies:

    Photography, computing, blogging, gardening and cookery - but not often at the same time.

  • Favourite places:

    England, India, France and Madeira - but not necessarily in that order.

Keep smiling!
