Having worked in the terribly British worlds of the House of Commons’ Library and then as a cricket journalist, Kemp finally decided it was time to see the real world.

After travelling and teaching, teaching and travelling, meeting and marrying an anarchist on a Greek island, he was asked by a friend who edited a magazine to write about some of his experiences teaching around Europe.

He did this.

And then carried on writing – as he noticed that despite seeing more and living more when you’re away from your own world, if you don’t write it down, the experiences all tend to disappear away like snow on an open fire.

So here they are, for what they’re worth.
Welcome to his world.
