I describe myself as a seasoned traveler (not a tourist, I like to say!) who has a passion for passing time in other places, in other cultures and with interesting people.
I live with my life partner who shares my keen interest in travel and together we have shared many common destinations, although she says I can occasionally be a little bit too daring. When that happens we are equally adept at branching out alone to explore on our own. I started a 10,500 km trip around South America with my brother-in-law who found after one week it wasn't for him and went home. I carried on for 5 weeks all alone and survived easily, even if dealing with corrupt police is a little harder by yourself.
I have made some longstanding friends and contacts through travel and have connections in places as diverse as Paraguay and Baja, Mexico.
I own a business that I have run for a number of years and now find I want to pursue quality of life before the quantity diminishes. I am in the process of 'disconnecting' from the business and leaving my staff to manage the day-to-day operations while I pursue a new direction through travel.
