    The web less travelled

    Posted by Brian Jones, Wednesday, June 12, 2002

    Greetings and welcome to site where the web hits the dirt road. The aim of the site is that it will become a forum for those people working and travelling in areas not commonly accessible to travellers for various political and security reasons. Many of the experiences portrayed will be from "complex humanitarian emergencies" occurring as a result of conflict and natural disasters. This comes from personal experiences of working as an emergency nutritionist for international humanitarian organisations in Asia the Middle East and Sub Saharan Africa.
