About Paul Curtis

Paul Curtis fell in love with the Isle of Wight on his first visit as an adult in 2008. Surprised and inspired by the sheer variety of landscapes in a relatively small area, he kept returning over the next three years and ended up walking nearly every footpath on the island before being commissioned by Cicerone to write a guidebook. He has lived on the island since 2011 but regularly finds time to walk and cycle on the mainland and internationally.
