My name's Joe Minihane. I'm a freelance travel writer based in Brighton, UK. I'm obsessed with all aspects of travel, from discovering new places, returning to old haunts, eating great food and experiencing the best culture any destination has to offer.


My travel writing has appeared in The Guardian, The Evening StandardLonely Planet, CNN Travel, Escapism magazine, Vacations and Travel, Emirates Open Skies, World Travel Guide and The Independent. I also edit and produce copy for a range of commercial clients. Between 2012 and 2015, I retraced Roger Deakin's seminal Waterlog, wild swimming my way across the UK from Scilly to Scotland. The book about my journey, Floating: A Life Regained, is out in 2017 on Duckworth. Pre–order from Hive, Amazon and Waterstones now.
