Having recently reached the landmark age of 40 (which of course we all know is the new 30), and having just packed my son off to school for the first time this week, I was thinking to myself at which point did I become so sensible, responsible and well 40?!….It wasn’t always this way….
I’ve been in travel since my very first ever job, and following my endeavors in further education spent most of my time trying to get away. Stints working in Italy, on a Kibbutz in Israel and the best part of 2 years living and working on Majorca definitely gave me the travel bug.
When I decided it was time to get a ‘proper’ job, travel sales was where I headed. First it was ‘Bucket & Spade’ holidays from Teletext (remember that?!) then Ski, Villas, Long Haul holidays and eventually into cruise.
I have been lucky enough to travel the world (courtesy of my wife being a stewardess!) and have experienced a number of cruises first hand which have included the Mediterranean, the Red Sea and Alaska.
With my years of travel industry experience and my years of travelling experience, please feel free to contact me, I am more than happy to help you with yours!
