After twenty years at the coalface of corporate restructuring, which included receiving a House of Commons commendation for saving a Norfolk pea-processing factory, Murray Stewart turned to travel-writing. Drawing on visits to over 60 countries, including periods teaching English in Chile and Mexico, as well as working as a consultant in Spain, he has since been published in national travel magazines as well as winning prizes for his online contributions. In 2016, he jumped at the opportunity to write the Bradt guide to the Basque Country. A self-confessed part-time ‘pilgrim’, Murray has now walked various routes along the Camino de Santiago and also the Camino Ignaciano, raising thousands of pounds for charities in the process. He has written Bradt’s Basque Country and the Navarre, and Camino Ignacino, and co-authored Bradt’s Azores, Cape Verde and North Cyprus. He lives in Buckinghamshire, working one day per week for a global development charity.
