[gdlr_tab title=”Tom Perkins” position=”” author_image=”” ]Tom Perkins is free-lance writer, cooking enthusiast, and compulsive traveler. In 2012, Tom completed an unassisted bicycle journey from London to Cape Town, travelling over 20,000 km, through 26 different countries, for 501 days. He is currently self-designing and self-publishing his first travel cookbook based upon the adventure, showcasing the characters, recipes and culinary worlds he encountered along the way.[/gdlr_tab]
[gdlr_tab title=”Jude Palmer” position=”” author_image=”” ]Jude’s ability to capture the precise moment, to evoke emotion without relying on equipment, and to seek out the instances that others may miss have all led to her appointment as official photographer of the 2014 Tour de France. For the nine months, prior to and during the event, she captured the competition, as well as the unseen heroes behind the event, from the organisers to community leaders to the die-hard super fans. She says, “It’s all about stamina, endurance, guts and grit.”[/gdlr_tab]
