I’m Robert Wright, tour guide & guidebook author. Here you’ll find weekly travel tips, observations about the world, a little reminiscing and a lot of photos. Be sure to check out my guides to Buenos Aires & Lisbon as well as snoop around the blog!
Working in Spain & Portugal means I’m on the road at least five months every year… a wonderful opportunity to see the world.
