Murray Stewart

About this author

In 2009, with a new-found ambition to become a travel writer, Murray Stewart turned his back on a 20-year career in corporate restructuring that included receiving a House of Commons commendation for saving a Norfolk pea-processing factory. 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 on subjects as diverse as the Camino de Santiago and Carcassonne Airport. A self-confessed part-time ‘pilgrim’, Murray has twice walked the Camino de Santiago, raising thousands of pounds for charity in the process. He speaks French, German, Spanish and a little Basque, too. As well as writing Bradt’s Basque Country guide, he has undertaken updates of Bradt’s North Cyprus, Cape Verde and Azores guides.
