Professional geologist and lecturer at Nottingham Trent University. Has written and illustrated numerous textbooks, guidebooks, popular articles and academic papers, and has created a library of photographs - Tony Waltham Geophotos. Travels widely and frequently (independently with travel-writing wife) mainly to remote or unusual locations, with a long history of expedition travel to caves all round the world. Recent destinations include Kamchatka, Alaska, Vietnam, Western USA, Costa Rica, Greenland, Burma/Myanmar, India, Nepal, Tibet, Sicily, Egypt, Laos, Sarawak, Yellowstone (again, but this time in the snow), and both North and South Korea. Greenland and Laos have got to be two of the great travel destinations - not for the crowds, but wonderful terrain and wonderful people. . Just travelled independently across Asia by train from from the delights of Bukhara to the horrors of Pyongyang (still controlled by its thought-police). Every new place is totally fascinating - the best reason to keep travelling.
