Author Biography - Peter Moore
Peter Moore is an itinerant hobo who is lucky enough to be able to support his insatiable travel habit (he has visited 92 countries on his travels) through writing. He is the author of four acclaimed travel books - The Wrong Way Home, The Full Montezuma, Swahili for the Broken-Hearted (shortlisted for the WHSMith People's Choice Travel Book Award) and Vroom with a View as well as the classic alternative travel guide, No Shitting in the Toilet. When he's not on the road living out of his senselessly overweight backpack, he alternates between London and Sydney with his collection of souvenir plastic snowdomes and Kinder Surprise toys.
