My name is Neville Walker and I’m a freelance travel writer, with a string of guidebooks, newspaper and magazine articles to my credit and an unreasonably detailed knowledge of the autoroutes and autobahns of western Europe.
I specialise in European travel, with occasional forays further afield. I divide my time between homes in London – where I live on the fringes of groovy Dalston – and Salzburger Land in Austria, where there’s a shortage of hipsters but the skiing is better.
In this blog I want to make a virtue of going off-piste. The destinations I will highlight are not the most fashionable, the most obvious or the most heavily-promoted, and if I feature a better-known place it will be in an offbeat, unfamiliar way.
If you want to sound off about the blog do it here, or feel free to tweet – I’m TravelNeville on Twitter. You can send the lucrative work offers to email@example.com

Very nice, Mr. Walker. I came across your Sanary piece just now. Having read most of Sybille Bedford, and currently reading Toibin’s “The Magician”, I realized Sybille and Thomas must have been in Sanary at the same time. Your comments about Sanary have added to my interest to visit there. I was afraid it may have become glitzy and over-touristed, but maybe not. I recently expatriated myself from San Francisco to Italy…. after nearly 40 years of extended trips here. One of these days I’ll go visit Sanary!
Cheers, I’ll enlist for updates!
I think you might be pleasantly surprised by Sanary. It is still pretty low-key and charming compared with places like St Tropez where the sheer weight of tourist numbers (and the rip-off prices) have somewhat spoiled the original appeal.
