Hamish was bitten by the roving bug at the age of 18, when he did a lap of Europe by train; made his way through India, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Hawaii; and finally washed up on the coast of sunny So-Cal. By the time he got home, he knew there was no pleasure like being able to wake up, open the guidebook, and decide on a whim where to go next. Before joining the wordsmiths at Mr & Mrs Smith’s London office, he wrote for Gentleman’s Journal magazine, for which he undertook arduous assignments like sampling beyond-his-means Alpine retreats.
