Kit Constable Maxwell loves to travel. His first experience of desert travel was a trip across Libya in 1960 when he was serving as an ensign in the Scots Guards. After that he completed a six-month assignment with the French Paras in the Massif Centrale.
In 1970 Kit converted his Land Rover into a 4-berth camper and took his wife Lyn and two sons, aged three and four, on an epic overland journey to India. They visited Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Iraq, Syria. Later he trained in photography and worked for worldwide clients as diverse as Bowater, Toyota, Saudi Airlines, and J&B Whisky.
Kit has been places and done things that many would envy, and he did them at his own pace and in his own time. As an amateur traveller with one ageing Land Rover, he made the world his oyster.
