According to the Turks and Caicos National Museum here in Cockburn Town, Grand Turk the reef system around the islands is the third largest in the world. The caravel that hit the reef in 1513 and is now known as the Molasses Reef wreck, was several miles out to sea and yet lies in 15 feet of water. This contrasts sharply with the seabed between South Caicos and Grand Turk, which plunges to 7,000 feet. This explains the number of diving outfits here in Cockburn Town.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit. View more posts
