David Abram

David Abram is a freelance writer based in Somerset whose work has appeared in most national newspapers and travel magazines. The author of numerous guide books to India and the French island of Corsica, he recently added a Burma to his portfolio with the publication of a new Insight Guide to the country in January 2013.

David's favourite project to date, however, was a guide to 50 of Britain's finest viewpoints only accessible on foot, published by the Ramblers, for which he travelled the length and breadth of the UK in search of spectacular panoramas. He also once spent three months trekking in Corsica to research a guide to the island's long-distance footpaths, and has walked extensively in India's northwest Himalaya, including along "Chaddar", the frozen river route to Zanskar.

David also gives the odd illustrated lecture, moonlighted as a presenter for Radio One's Global Update show in the early noughties, and has appeared on Wanderlust's panels of experts at various travel shows.
