I’ve recently joined Travel Nation after a couple of years away from the industry, which had more to do with a little-known pandemic than choice.
I started my travel career in the mid-’90s with STA Travel after my second big trip away, this time travelling through central and south America. Thinking it was a job for a few months, I soon realised that sharing my travel knowledge with customers was so rewarding that I was still with them 25 years later, spending my last 10 years managing one of their larger stores.
In my free time if I’m not out of the country I can be found in my garden, at an occasional gig or music festival, or painting portraits and travel-related scenes.
After leaving school, I went straight into a number of roles within the graphic design industry before heading off on my first big trip at the age of 20.
25 years and counting…
