N.J. Richards acquired a taste for travel as he worked and traveled his way around Europe before broadening his horizons with trips to the US. Next on the agenda was Shanghai, China, an eye-opening journey around Japan’s Honshu island and a little known country in Central Asia called Kyrgyzstan, which resulted in the first of two travelogue books “Destination Bishkek”, which in the form of a diary recounts everyday life from one Russian family’s perpsective.
N.B. The second travelogue book, “Twelve adventures, one journey”, retraces twelve destinations that left an indelible mark on the author.
When he isn’t traveling N.J. Richards, an internationally experienced trilingual global business services operations manager, enjoys alpine hiking, world cultures, world cooking, and exploring different topics in his Blog and his recreational websites, dedicated to some unexpected subjects, such as military aircraft and ecology.
