Stephen Fabes is an A&E doctor and author 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, and he is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and currently works in the Emergency Department at St Thomas’ Hospital in London. Time off is for running trails. ‘Signs of Life: To the ends of the earth with a doctor’, was published by Profile in August, and is his first book.
