Christopher Combe is a 41-year-old writer and frustrated rock star who surveys quantities to pay the bills. He lives just north of the ancient city of York, is married, and has two bloody smashing children. He has been fortunate enough to travel to various places around the world through his work, including the USA, the Middle East, the Far East and much of Europe. He has had an interest in writing since he was a child, and still harbours an ambition to be a bona-fide published author. His first full-length (self-published) book, "One Year In Wonderland", draws on his experience as an expat in Dubai in the UAE.

I've not posted on here for a long, long time, but need somewhere to vent other than Facebook to avoid pissing everyone off with a constant barrage of random witterings about the EU referendum... So here goes.

I’m sick of being told, “You lost, get over it, move on!” or “You’re a sore loser!” This isn’t a game of football, and I for one will not shut up and move on. There's far too much at stake... Read more of this blog post »

“To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise, you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen who play with their boats at sea... cruising, it is called. Voyaging belongs to seamen, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in. If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about.”
Christopher Combe, One Year in Wonderland: A True Tale of Expat Life in Dubai
