My name is Julian Emre Sayarer, I am 23 years old. I lived in London until the age of five, and then in Leicestershire, before taking a gap year in Vietnam, with the charity Project Trust. I studied politics at the University of Sussex in Brighton, completed my studies, moved to Turkey, the home of my father and adoptive home of my mother, and returned to London a year later. I am currently to be found as a cycle courier on the streets of the city, and can occassionally be found either endeavouring or hoping to one day make a living from writing. I have toured through thousands of miles by bicycle, riding to Lisbon in 2005, to Istanbul in 2006 and 2007, from Athens to Milan in 2006, and from Odessa in the Ukraine to Krakow in Poland in 2008.

Here's a few snaps of my previous adventures.
