My Story:

Profile Pic

Hi my name is Paul Raftery, 

I am a freelance writer based in Southend on Sea in Essex, working for a number of clients both in the UK and abroad. Over the past several years I have also enjoyed living and travelling in Southeast Asia, spending time working on my latest book, A Learning Curve.

Please don’t measure my standard of writing based on this blog. This is my personal forum for playing around with ideas, which is much less formal than my professional writing. I write for this blog often on the road, so I don’t always have the time to make sure its polished.

But don’t take my word for it. Now you can download a free sample of my latest book at Amazon –

I love to travel and try to spend as much time abroad as possible. If I’m not writing for my book then I like to post my thoughts and opinions about the places I am visiting. My intentions are for this to be an everlasting blog that I shall be adding to over the course of my life time, while I continue to travel the globe. I also have a number of articles I am keen to get started on, including some about famous travellers and activists throughout history.

During my recent travels, I have visited Thailand, Malaysia, China, India and Japan.

Currently I am hooked on Asia, but I have plans to visit South America REAL soon. So please follow me on my journey around the world as I try to make sense of it all.
