Welcome to Leighton Travels, an online exhibition of my life exploring the world. Lovingly crafted since 2015, I have put my heart and soul into this site and really hope you enjoy your stay.
I’ve been into writing since I was a kid. As an adult, no matter where I went, I always put pen to paper, finger to keyboard. Eventually, it simply became a way of life. These days I have fully submitted to my existence as a digital nomad. All I want to do is travel, write and share.
Here you can read about my adventures in 30+ countries. For the most part I have travelled deep, taking my time to meet the people, indulge in the food and wander off the beaten path.
With a photo and notes library spanning over twenty years, Leighton Travels features an ever-growing archive of reports from individual world locations. There are over 600 so far, with a new report added every few days.
I think I’ve lived a pretty interesting life, with lots of cool stories to share. From my days as an English teacher to my work as a writer, voice over and interviewer of Hollywood stars, you can check out my life memoirs through My Short Stories.
In addition to writing and travel, I’m passionate about music, cinema, football, literature, animals, coffee and world cuisine. As a result, my articles are often infused with these things and more!
Over the years, I have written for a host of publications, including the Dutch media company FCCE and the award winning travel website Global Grasshopper.
Today Leighton Travels is curated by myself, Leighton Thomas, and my wife Slađa. Whatever you choose to dip into you are very welcome. So dig around, see what takes your fancy and find out what happens when Leighton Travels…
