James is a travel editor, journalist and obsessive who has crisscrossed the globe: extensively so across North America, Europe and Asia. He’s extremely partial to long road trips, bats and burritos. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Mexico is his favourite country.

When he’s not been otherwise engaged grinding gears, worrying wildlife or topping tortillas, he has occasionally found time to edit and write for publications such as The Telegraph, MSN, Grazia, City A.M., Clash, The Sun’s Fabulous magazine, Yahoo!, AOL, Plan B, and his own website dearlydepartures.com, among others.

He doesn't usually talk about himself in the third person.
