I’m Kevin McLaughlin. A journalist born in Derry, Northern Ireland. I’ve spent most of my working life with the BBC and working with digital mobile and web content in the UK.
I’ve always been a bit of an explorer and really loved to push my own personal boundaries, so after leaving my role in telecoms I decided to embark on a project to write a book about my unique experiences as a visually impaired traveler going around the world. What would I experience? How might it differ from someone with full vision? What would I see that they may miss? There was only one way to find out.
The adventure to find the answers to these question began on the 1st March 2010 when I took a flight from London to New York to start almost 6 months of travel which took me to 12 countries around the globe.
The project was entirely self funded. To find out more about what happened read my forthcoming book “Blindly Going Who Knows Where?”.
