Writing Pathway

Victor Paul Borg has been writing for publication for the past 22 years. He has written variedly, penning articles and features about a wide-range of subjects, including news features, for newspapers and magazine. His essays have covered a wide array of subjects, and he has authored several columns – these include a column about the backpacker circuit in Asia, and a column about food.   

  

His writing mostly pertains to a crop of interrelated subjects: nature, travel, geography, tourism, environment and food. Victor blends these subjects in swirling combinations, thus forging his unique written style – a lot of his travel writing is infused with reportage that touches on the same themes. He also like to narrate stories of humans and nature interacting at the geographic and human frontiers; and his food writing stands on its own, arising from his passion for food, particularly Asian cuisines.  

 

His magazine writing has been published widely, and he has written for international publications including The Times of London, The Guardian, Geographical, Outside, Conde Nast Traveler, Discovery (Cathay Pacific), Open Skies (Emirates), BBC Wildlife, Saveur & Destinasian.
