Welcome to my blog The Son of Thom!

I am Daniel Steptoe-Thompson and I live in my home town of Colchester, Essex. I was originally just Thompson until I got married to my wife Nicola and we put our surnames together to create ‘Steptoe-Thompson’.

According to Wikipedia (A credible source of knowledge!) Thompson is a patronymic surname of English and Scottish origin, with a variety of spellings meaning “son of Thom”. Hence the name of the blog.

As well as reviewing places I have travelled, a mash up of lifestyle choices, combining my love of coffee and tattoos and ticking things off my bucket list. I will be documenting my family tree and how far back I can take my family name of Thompson to see where we come from.
