This is the travel blog of Will Hide. That’s me. I’m a journalist based in London who has been writing on travel for the last 16 years of which 12 were on the travel desk of the Times (I was in house helping to produce the Saturday travel section). I still write for them now as a freelance and also the Financial Times, Independent, Mail on Sunday and various magazines here in the UK, USA, Australia, Dubai and South East Asia.
What’s this site about? I want to write about the kind of places I’d recommend to my mates if they said “Will, I’m going to Cape Town – where’s a great place for weekend brunch?” (The Olympia Cafe in Kalk Bay, by the way, is one of my favourites).
Same goes for websites.
And I’ve been lucky enough to meet some really top people on my travels, so I want to pick their brains and give you their knowledge too.
