I'm one of the luckiest people on the planet.
Through no design of my own I was fortunate to be born in a westernised country with access to top-rate education and well-paying job prospects. This provide me with advantages 99% of the global population could only dream of. Rather than having to worry about spending all my time scraping out a living, I actually have leisure time and can choose what I do with that time. This includes spending a Sunday morning updating the Best Travel Books website, whilst occasionally attending to my children. It also means, within reason, I can travel to any overseas destination for no other reason than for personal enjoyment or curiosity.
