I took my first solo trip around Europe when I was 17, and I’ve been travelling and writing professionally since I was 23 – and that’s a long time ago now. I’ve written and edited lots (and I mean lots) of guidebooks, and if you’ve ever been to Spain, Portugal, Italy, Scandinavia, the UK, USA, Hong Kong or New Zealand, I may have helped you out with a hotel or restaurant recommendation along the way – here’s my Author Page on Amazon if you’d like to check me out.
I’ve also written widely for newspapers, magazines, blogs and websites, and I’m a consultant for the best-of-UK-travel website Cool Places. My latest book as editor is ‘Cool Places – the UK’s coolest places to stay, eat, drink and shop’.
Over the years I’ve gone backpacker-style and first class, climbed volcanoes, splashed in warm oceans, driven across Australia, helicoptered over the Niagara Falls, searched for the Loch Ness monster, and lived for varying times in Portugal, Hong Kong, Sicily and New Zealand. I’ve also been robbed, got lost, fallen in and off things, and eaten a jellyfish. Oh, and a puffin.
I make travel videos too, and if you want to see more scenes from my travelling life just search for the Jules Told Me YouTube channel or check out the trailer below.
So, that’s me. Get in touch, and tell me about your own travels – I’d love to hear your stories.
And if you find anything on the site that inspires you, just be sure to say – Jules Told Me!
