Simon Reeve: Open Book


We recently caught up with Simon Reeve to chat fish-based souvenirs, remarkable memories and donkey border crossings. Simon is an acclaimed author and travel presenter, and foreword writer on our book Journey.

Describe your strangest travel experience in five words.

Adopted by former head hunters.

What are three objects you couldn’t do without while travelling?

My head torch, which has literally saved my life on several occasions. A very sharp multi-tool for chopping up the bread, repairing the cameras and whittling spoons. And a small box of tea bags for taking a bit of Blighty on the road.
