Bo Heamyan

‘Bo Heamyan' is the rather fanciful pen name of D B Calpin, a freelance travel & lifestyle writer with a casual tone and perennially itchy feet.

After spending more than a decade working and travelling around the world, Bo decided to turn his hand to writing full-time. Since turning freelance, this NCTJ-accredited wordsmith has generated commercial content for Google, Yahoo, Trivago and Kayak; contributed features to Lonely Planet and Digital Nomad Travel Magazine, and written lifestyle articles for print titles like Group Travel World and Perfect Fit. He’s also become somewhat preoccupied with writing about the ups-and-downs of parenting since his four-year-old daughter arrived on the scene (a fact reflected by the publication of his first book, Expecting the Unexpected).

Away from writing, Bo enjoys taking off on spontaneous road trips, going to music festivals and getting questions right on Only Connect. Cycling and hiking around his rural Lincolnshire home is also a big passion, although nothing is more important to the Hertfordshire-born hack than playing outdoors with his increasingly adventurous little girl.
