Nigel Tisdall

Roaming writer

Nigel’s globetrotting career began one wet Monday morning in 1985 when he went to London’s Liverpool Street station and caught a train to Hong Kong. Since then, he’s been roaming all over the world, writing principally for The Daily Telegraph and its weekend companion, The Sunday Telegraph.
