What is Gavisgone?

I’ve nothing to sell here only myself and my writing. I’m just casually serialising some romantic transcendentalist literature for the 2020’s renaissance.

You’re going to need it.

All about travel, adventure, physical activity, psychology, psychogeography and flânerie – being, both inside and out.

Some recent informal reviews of Gavisgone (personal and literary):

“Your writing made me want to go for a run/swim in the sea/meditate”

“Great to read about men lifting the lid on inner work”

“Sensible wrapped in chaos”

“A fascinating soul”

“Reading that really made me feel like I was in… whatever country it was that you were in. It was great though!”

“A gonzo motherf*cker”
