My Story

After 27 years working in newspaper I traded my days as an editor in a cubicle 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. My wife and I started a new adventured in 2015, moving to Cairo, my base for travel writing about Egypt and other areas of North Africa and the Middle East. We spent the past year traveling around India, Egypt, the U.S. and Southeast Asia and are now based in Ho Chi Min City. Follow me on Instagram at patrickrobertscott
