MICHAEL GEBICKI finds that the journey gets interesting when he leaves his comfort zone behind

Michael Gebicki is a Sydney-based travel writer who loves the freedom and the sense of the unexpected that travel brings. “Writing about it gives me a license to poke around in odd corners of the world,” he says. Among his favourite foreign places: Italy, France, Japan, India, the countries that were once Indochina, Papua New Guinea, remote parts of Indonesia and Morocco.

Burma also occupies a special place in his heart. “And any place where I don’t belong. When you leave your comfort zone behind, the journey gets interesting.”
