It was a cartoon lion that really started my love affair with travelling: Around the world with Willy Fog made eight-year-old me understand there was a world outside of Bristol, where I grew up. Thirty years on I'm yet to notch up quite as many countries as Willy, but I'm giving it a good go with recent trips to Africa, Canada and Switzerland. When I'm not on a plane, train or on the sea, I live in London with my partner Nick, a football writer, and a black and white cat called Clough, who likes nothing more than tucking into a whole M&S sourdough loaf.
