Afishoutofgrimsby is the blog of Phillip Norton, who for seven months has swapped reporting on stories for the BBC across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire for a life strapped to a backpack in a journey of adventure around the world.
Originally from Grimsby (hence the title!) I made a resolution at New Year that this, my 30th year, would be a year of excitement and discovery. Inspired by some shorter trips and some very special people im lucky to have as friends, the plan is to share some of my experiences on here, which will also act as my diary.
The journey begins in Hull, taking in Moscow, before the Trans-Siberian railway takes in Mongolia and China. Then there’s a tour of south-east Asia, including Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, before a hop over to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the west coast of America.
Im a keen photographer and looking forward to sharing some shots, and although i’m a former newspaper journalist, its my first attempt at blogging – it’ll be rough round the edges at first i’m sure, but hopefully you’ll enjoy reading it!
Thanks for stopping by!
