Andrew Humphrey > Travel Writing

Guardian Travel Unlimited logo I was chosen for the Netjetters II project by the readers and Editors of Guardian Travel Unlimited. I was sent around the world with a basic itinerary and a low budget. Another writer, Ellie Levenson, was sent in the opposite direction. We were on the road from December 2001 to April 2002, and these are my reports as featured on the website and in the newspaper. Since my return, I have written some more pieces for Guardian Travel (see below).
