A Word from Alex Myall

  • Why Author Chose This Career: Ever since I can remember I have written my thoughts down. Later that turned into writing periodically for publications in the fitness industry, appearing on blogsites and even in the prestigious London Telegraph at one point. Eventually I recognised that at every turn I was looking for places to write. When the opportunity to write for Explorers Web came up it provided an avenue to write about human response to exploration, endurance or survival.
  • How Author Began Career: I started writing for various publications while working in the fitness industry, when I moved into travel the writing element bridged the two passions.
  • Personal Interests: Trail Running and travel
