Elspeth Callender

Elspeth allows a chronic compulsion to travel to rule her life. The road keeps her mind open to other ways of living and fresh ways of seeing and makes her take risks. To quote her hero, writer and activist Gloria Steinem, “more reliably than anything else on earth, the road will force you to live in the present”. Writing about travel feels as instinctive as that innate desire to be on the move.
