Below, you will find a ragtag collection of knaves and rogues alike, each commissioned for the right coin. Ziggy has a knack for rallying such odd yet auspicious humans.

Such a merry band of mercenaries could be yours too, but first, you’ll need to inspect the publications below, see the services available, and then have a chat with Ziggy to discuss what you require.

Ziggy travelled for a long time to many other realms to find a place that felt like home. Then, he found it – in the land of his own birth. In Ziggy’s final guide for The Broke Backpacker, he writes about the little island that captured his heart.

In this piece, Ziggy attempts to do the unthinkable – write a travel guide for Israel that doesn’t ignore the elephant caged in the room: Palestine.

Many moons ago – and much to the disdain of his editor – Ziggy was commissioned to write an article about sex and travel that was “as edgy as conceivably possible”. He delivered, but what nobody expected was a post that was equally thoughtful as it was debauched.
