Otto Ecroyd is a serial adventure starter and first-time finisher. He has almost sailed from Norway to Scotland, driven halfway from London to Ulaanbaatar, and gotten lost, stuck and confused (in no particular order) in more countries than he’d care to remember.
Otto moved from New Zealand to London in 2010, a card-carrying member of the corporate class. The small joys of City life accumulated. Red-eye flights to Frankfurt, debates over the correct shade of blue on a chart, conference call chat about the weather. Feet began to itch. Maps were bought. Outcomes of previous adventures were disregarded. Northbound and Down (Great Northern Books, 2020) is Otto’s first book.
