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, on blogs and even in the prestigious London Telegraph at one point. Eventually I recognized that at every turn, I was looking for places to write. When the opportunity to write for ExplorersWeb 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
