Hello and welcome to The Itinerant. In case you’re not quite sure what you’re doing here or who the blazes The Itinerant is, read on to find out more.
The Itinerant is the electronic home of myself, Antonia Bolingbroke-Kent; a travel writer and ladyventurer with a particular love of wandering alone through remote regions. My third book, Land of the Dawn-Lit Mountains: a journey across Arunachal Pradesh – India’s forgotten frontier, was published by Simon & Schuster UK and India in June 2017, and by by Simon & Schuster USA in July 2018. It was runner-up in the 2018 Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards (pipped to the post by Shark Drunk), with judge Phoebe Smith calling it ‘exquisitely written, with a strong sense of place and proper travel writing in the classic style.’
When I’m not poking around some distant corner of the globe, I can be found giving talks, writing articles, producing television programmes and co-running Silk Road Adventures from my home in Bristol.
I am thrilled to say that I am the recipient of the Royal Geographical Society’s 2019 Neville Shulman Challenge Award. More details to be announced shortly.
