Award-winning travel writer Julian Sayarer grew up riding a bicycle into neighbouring counties and then countries. Having cycled a half dozen times across Europe to Turkey, he broke a world record for a circumnavigation by bicycle, riding 18,049 miles in 169 days. He hitchhiked through Middle America, and travelled by boat to remote islands in Asia, chronicling a world and people at the edge of modernity.
Julian combines a background in political science to create a critically acclaimed travel writing style – politics at roadsides. In this way, he uses human stories and the perspective of travel to document global issues for a broad audience.
