A warm welcome to my new page here on the BBC News site. This will be the home for my thoughts on events and issues in the worlds I cover from Cairo to Kabul, New Delhi to New York, as well as highways and byways in between and beyond.
It's also a place where you can see my television reports, hear my radio stories, find out about my fellow travellers. And you can also post your comments too - please do.
Lyse has been reporting for the BBC for nearly 30 years, with posts in Abidjan, Kabul, Islamabad, Tehran, Amman and Jerusalem. In 1999 she joined the BBC's team of presenters but most of her time is spent going back to regions where she lived, and also discovering new ones too.
Lyse often presents from the field for BBC World News, and the BBC World Service's flagship Newshour programme, as well as the News Channel. She works as a correspondent too, reporting across the BBC's global and domestic TV and radio outlets. She also writes for BBC online and posts - judiciously! - on Twitter and Facebook.
Lyse feels at home in many places but is still Canadian. She was educated in Canada, at Queen's University, and the University of Toronto, and has been awarded several honorary doctorates as well as major journalism awards.
