  • James Ruddy

Biography :
Adaptable, amusing and highly versatile travel writer. Happy to consider commissions for all types of travel, from hotel reviews and destination reports to off-the-beaten-track treks. I can produce everything, from fun 24-hour stopovers to sweeping broadsheet features with classy pictures. As an ex-war journalist (from Bosnia and Croatia to Sudan and Sierra Leone), I am as at home yomping the jungles of SE Asia and S America as sitting in a quiet Belem cafe and sampling a new Pasteis. My Irish ancestry has taught me to enjoy the fun and the quirks of meeting new people and seeing new places. I like nothing better than a challenge. Try me!
