– The Editor, a.k.a. Urban Travel Blogger-in-Chief


Born and raised in the leafy and rather dull suburb of Beckenham Kent, aside from the odd sangria-infested sojourn to Spain, Duncan took his sweet time in getting out and about to discover the world. It was a trip that started in Prague in 2002 and ended in Sydney a year later that ignited his passion for foreign climes and their promise of adventure. Whilst his friends often raved about his traveller tales (faithfully emailed back home), it wasn’t until he upped sticks from the parental nest in ‘Nam and relocated to Krakow that he began his career in the travel writing field, applying his developing skills to the Cracow Life desk.

He never made it as an astronaut

After several years in his dream job the liver simply couldn’t take any more super-strength Polish lager and he applied for a transfer to Barcelona, where he is busy discovering intriguing new concepts such as ‘culture’ and ‘literature’ and enjoying the rather more clement weather. You can normally still find him there or in London, if he’s not off on another adventure. Although he writes primarily for the web, just to prove he can scribble with the old school he pens regular features for the likes of Let’s Go Magazine, Easyjet Magazine and CNN Traveller, and has also contributed pieces for The Guardian and Conde Nast Traveller. He has his own travel writer’s blog, which he rarely updates, and is also the Editor of Barcelona Life travel guide, a defunct football site, and now a roleplaying blog.

You can keep tabs on both Duncan and the latest goings on at UTB, via his Editorial updates, as well of course via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+.
