Terry Grigg is a writer, world traveller, environmental and social campaigner, gardener and anti-natalist. He’s worked in an animal sanctuary, a garden centre and plant nursery, various conservation projects and been involved in Green politics and charities.
For much of the past twenty years Terry has travelled across all the continents apart from Antarctica, spending many months and years on the road. Over-landing from Nairobi to Cape Town, backpacking through South-East Asia, with a Government guide in North Korea or a trek in the Annapurna; just some of his adventures.
His first book Backpacking with a Bunion, about his trip in South-East Asia was published in 2008. The first volume of Terry’s Travels Orcland to the Ottomans, published in 2016, traces a journey from New Zealand through Australia, Eastern Asia and the Silk Road to Turkey. He is currently writing the second volume about the Indian subcontinent.
Here’s what three Amazon reviewers have to say: ‘The author’s dry humour makes the whole experience very real, and the insights into environmental concerns are highlighted.’ ‘The author manages to bring alive the places he visits, with interesting factual narrative.’ ‘His observations are eye opening and reflective. You may not agree with all of his insight, but you will look at the world differently having read them.’
When not travelling, Terry is at home just outside Inverness writing or gardening.
