Author Biography - David Abram

Freelance travel writer David Abram was born and brought up in south Wales and the Mendip Hills of Somerset in England. His first foray into the Corsican mountains came in 1986, during the sabbatical year of a French degree, when he stumbled upon some waymarks and followed them blindly for two days until wild pigs polished off his supplies. Since then, as an anthropologist and author of the Rough Guide to India, he s walked extensively in the Himalayas, Europe and North America but still regards Corsica as a benchmark trekking destination. Regular opportunities to indulge his passion for the island s food and mountains are provided by annual updating trips for the Rough Guide to Corsica, which he co-authored. David lives and works in Bristol.
