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. He has since been published in national travel magazines as well as winning prizes for his online contributions. He has now twice updated Bradt’s North Cyprus guidebook, and also the sixth editions of Bradt’s Cape Verde and Azores guides. In April 2016, the first edition of his guide to The Basque Country and Navarre was published, the most comprehensive English-language guidebook to the region. In his spare time, he is a self-confessed part-time ‘pilgrim’, having twice walked the Camino de Santiago, raising thousands of pounds for charity in the process. Most recently, he has walked from Santiago to Fisterra. He speaks French, Spanish, German and some Portuguese.
