About

Destination Addicted is a travel and culture blog for those of us trying to focus on the journey.

Hello, I'm Simon, a writer and teacher from the UK who has been living in Asia for the past five years. In 2013, I left my job as a journalist to teach English abroad. I lived in Thailand and Japan, and now I'm working as an editor again, this time in Taiwan.

I started this site because I couldn't find a travel blog I actually enjoyed reading. My only real goal is to entertain you, but you may also find some useful travel information and cultural insights sprinkled throughout.

If you'd rather be amused than sold a lifestyle, stick around, we'll get on great.

Want to know more about me?

Of course you do.
