Hi there, I’m Ben Groundwater: a travel writer, photographer and broadcaster.

My work in a variety of media has been published across the globe. I’m a columnist and feature writer for the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, the author of two travel books, I host the popular travel podcast “Flight of Fancy” and appear frequently on radio. I’ve also written copy for some of the world’s biggest corporate travel and destination marketing brands, and I’ve twice been named the Australian Society of Travel Writers’ “Travel Writer of the Year”.

I specialise in solo travel, in adventure travel, in food and in wine. I’m a seeker of the world’s quirks, a lover of uncovering the cultural idiosyncrasies and unique characters of the globe. I currently live in San Sebastian, Spain, though my heart belongs in Australia, my stomach belongs in Tokyo, and my feet will forever be walking the Peruvian Andes.
