I am sure you won’t remember me but we had a very enjoyable lunch in about 2002 when I was working with CTS Horizons at your club in Soho.
As a rookie in the business I remember the lunch and your tales.
I am working on a new idea for a travel website that I would love to talk to you about, We are working on a traveller focused holiday lettings site that is inspirational and destination based rather than accommodation based. We are looking for writers who can bring a destination to life and create a real sense of where the place is that they are booking.
I would be welcome the opportunity to return the lunch and chat with you about what you have been doing and what our plans are.
I hope that your travels have continued to be adventurous and thrilling.

Dear Mr Stewart,
As a former resident of Santa Fe I read your article in The Australian today with interest and a little nostalgia. You are right – it is a charming place. I lived there for several years, but have to confess that I never really embraced the desert like all those artists you mention, not the least being DHL. And, I found the dogged insistence on the South-Western architectural style reminiscent of Disneyland kitsch. There were some quite spectacular and beautiful 19th Century buildings around the Santa Fe plaza that were bull-dozered into oblivion – too bad.
I write with the greatest respect about something that will interest you:
Your article overlooked the “DHL Museum” in Taos – as many before have done. The omission is quite understandable.
On the south side of the Taos plaza is a hotel, the name of which I have forgotten. In a private room on the ground floor are a score or more of DHL’s paintings. It is not open to the public and you have to know it is there. If you plead long and loud enough you might be granted entry, as I was.
I have to say, it is a bit underwhelming – there is good reason for DHL never being included in the canon of modern art, but interesting nevertheless.
Thanks for the pleasant memories.

I represent the tourism board of Nicaragua and came across your fantastic feature in the February issue of CNT UK. I’d love to connect when you have a moment to discuss your visit and all that you encountered. How did you come across much of the material (e.g. accommodation options)? All info is truly wonderful.
I’d also like to connect regarding other clients my agency represents. I look forward to speaking with you soon.

I really loved your article about Naples. I do wholeheardely agree with all you had to say, although I am well aware that you can just put so much in an article so lots of stuff has to be left out.
I wanted to point out a few things though that are worth mentioning: walking through the historical centre, there are areas where Roman and Greek ruins are in plain sight. This is absolutely unique to Naples and the recent expansion of public transportation (especially the underground) makes travelling across the centre particularly easy. Also, there are many associations/mom and pop shops which will let you explore the various manufacts they do (there is at least one for pottery, which is really incredible). Also, behind “Purgatorio ad Arco”, there’s an Archivist association where lots of ancient parchments/documents and books can be viewed. Some of those even have seals preserved from the antique times they come from. And most of this stuff is absolutely free.
Naples isn’t just “one world”, it’s many worlds mixed together and it really takes a lot of time to explore it properly.
However, BRAVO for the article, I really think you did us a great service. We need to see more of that.
I have already spread it among my contacts on Facebook.
Thank you and keep up the good work.

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed ‘Frontiers of Heaven’. I was on the KKH in 1986 – riding on top of one of those buses you describe! You brought me back to Hunza, Gilgit, Gulmit and Sust, Rakaposhi and the Mir’s palace, and made me so happy. Thank you! If you want to see it through slightly different eyes (Irish, female), you can find my account at http://www.mvbehan.com/pakistan-1986.html.
