Rich was born in the early 80’s and began working as a journalist in the city of London writing for a financial magazine. When he realised that he could write about travel instead of complex loans and financing, he quit. Since then he’s tried to spend as much time travelling as possible.

Rich’s first book “Drive-Thru USA” detailed two coast to coast road trips he took across the States. The book was the no.1 most downloaded travel ebook on and was subsequently released in paperback.

Rich’s second book “My Reign in Spain” told his account of learning Spanish in order to give a best man’s speech at a wedding in Spain. Rich’s third book, a more personal travel memoir, “Footsteps”, was published at the end of 2018.

Rich lives in the South West of England, where he spends his time with his wife, his cat and a large collection of old Lonely Planet guides that he won’t throw away. Follow on Twitter: or Facebook:
