Tom Neal Tacker
Tom Neal Tacker is an intrepid traveller. Aged eight, he accompanied his parents to Miami Beach and lost them as quickly as possible.
His approach to writing about travel has always been about the less than well-trod path, particularly if food and wine are included.
Having survived epidemics in Burkana Faso, warfare in Uganda, a trip on the ‘’death boat’’ up the Sudanese Nile, muggings in Rio de Janeiro, bear and moose attacks in Alaska, scams in Turkey and working in Mother Teresa’s Kolkata hospice knows all about travel on the wild side.
He is a regular contributor to publications such as : The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald, Australian Traveller, Skylar, En Route, CWL – Connect, Australian Gourmet Pages, Get Lost!, Time Out and numerous inflight magazines. His work has also been published in three anthologies: “Best Foot Forward: 30 Years of Australian Travel Writing, “Red Dust and Wanderlust, Tales of Travel in Australia’’ and “Snapshots of Sri Lanka, Travel Tales from the Island of Serendipity”.
