Images featured in the November issue of The Idler Magazine.

Very pleased to see that some of my images from last summer's trip to Transylvania in Romania got published in The Idler Magazine's November issue.

Oli Broom - the man behind the travel company called The Slow Cyclist which arranges cycling tours in Transylvania - had an essay published in the current issue of The Idler Magazine. The essay tells his story of how he went from working in the City to becoming a Slow Cyclist and starting his travel company. Cycling from the Lord's Cricket Ground in London to Brisbane Cricket Ground in Australia is a pretty awesome achievement, and is an experience most of us will not top.

I had the pleasure of cycling around in Transylvania with him in June 2015 together with a group from the Global Heritage Fund. Oli and his local guides arranged an absolutely fantastic trip for us, eating real home-cooked food in the homes of locals and arranging really lovely accommodation, and slowly cycling through the gorgeous countryside and beautiful Saxon villages. We even had the pleasure of meeting Prince Charles for an inauguration of a traditionally built Kiln with funds raised by The Global Heritage Fund.
