Kris Mole was born in London, 1983, and grew up in Brighton. He works as a freelance journalist and English teacher, frequently embarking on ambitious travel projects, documenting European countries and the lives lived within them.
He is officially banned from a small town just outside Rome, and played two seasons of semi-professional football in the Slovenian national league.
In 2007, he embarked on the Great Euro Freebie Challenge, to visit every capital city in the mainland European Union without spending or handling any money. The story of this journey was told in Gatecrashing Europe, published by Valley Press in 2015.
