I am a Travel Writer and phylonthego.com is a Travel Blog incorporating travel, food and lifestyle topics. My interests are extensive and eclectic and I write about whatever piques my interest - after all, this is my blog !!

phylonthego.com was a four year travel blog covering my travels in South and Central America and the United States that was hacked. The website was destroyed and with great patience and help from friends who had saved some of the posts, I was able to partially recover it.
A few of the posts are still lost while others need their pohotgraphs and I am continuing to work on recovering as much as is possible, as this represents a record of my travels.
