As part of the book birthday blitz, organised by Rachel’s Random Resources, I have a guest post from Aaron Hodges about travelling and fantasy writing
So if you don’t know too much about me, probably the first thing you should know is that I’m a traveller. In the last six years, I have spent 80% of my time outside of my home country of New Zealand, and have to date visited over 50 different nations. I love the backpacker life, the excitement of meeting new people and exploring new cities and landscapes (of course, this was all before covid19). And while this lifestyle is only possible because I am lucky enough to have a job as a writer that allows me to work from anywhere, I’ve found more often than not that my travels have also helped to inspire my writing.
