My Story

After 27 years working in newspapers I traded my days as an editor in an office for a life exploring fascinating places around the world. My job as a business editor for The New York Times took us from the Carolinas, where I worked for The Charlotte Observer for 20 years, to Manhattan for two years, then London for two years. I started travel writing after we moved to Cairo in 2015 and continued chronicling my adventures after landing in Vietnam in 2018. Follow me on Instagram @patrickrobertscott
