Phil Brown has been writing travel for more than two decades. If you've read his book Travels With My Angst you'll know he's not the best traveller in the world but Phil has written on locations from the Himalayas to the Scottish Highlands where he once bagged a Munro. Look it up if you don't know what that means.
His favourite destination is always Hong Kong and his favourite hotel is always The Peninsula, that's a given, but he has ranged far and wide and here you can read about some of his journeys.
