Doctor – Writer – Wanderer
Stephen Fabes is a medical doctor with a bad case of wanderlust and no sense of direction. He finally found his way home in 2016 after cycling the length of six continents – a six-year adventure across 75 countries and 53,000 miles. Stephen uses human stories to explore the landscape of health and disease. His writing has appeared in The Guardian, the Telegraph, Geographical, CNN and the BBC among others. He’s a regular at live storytelling nights and currently works at the Royal Free Hospital in London, specialising in Acute Medicine. Time off is for running trails. Signs of Life was shortlisted for both the Telegraph Cycling Book of the Year and The Boardman Tasker Prize. It’s his first book.
