Prior Works

When looking at my previous works published online you'll notice that quite a few of them include a comprehensive text and serve as quasi-guides.


Though I firmly believe in the famous aphorism about a picture "being worth a thousand words," I have a great interest in writing as well, but because I go through such great care to make sure my writings are of a high standard in terms of grammar, factual accuracy and vocabulary; thus even the briefest opus ends up taking a great deal of time. The aforementioned facts are the main reasons why I only keep a "digital diary" of my travels, instead of the daily compositions in blogs preferred by most ardent travelers.



You'll also probably notice that a leitmotif of these pieces is the focus on supposedly "rogue" and dangerous locales (e.g. Syria).
