Tell us about you

Vagabond, hobo, loveable rogue, I am homesick for a place I have never been

Favourite travel destination and why

Anywhere I haven’t been. What is over the next horizon is the best destination

How many countries have you visited?

At least 40.

Most recent adventure

Just came back from Tanzania and Kenya, summited Kilimanjaro and camped in the Serengeti

Best travel memory

Too many! Either standing on top of Kala Patthar staring at Everest, or at 40m diving with whalesharks and a tornado of barracudas 

Best travel tips

Don’t try and do too much on your trip. If you don’t stop and just be, then you will never fully appreciate where you are. Get lost in every city you visit, you can never have too many maps, always eat and drink the local stuff and know about where you are going even if you don’t know why you want to go there

Favourite food experience

Char Siew buns, Xiao Long Bao, Popiah, and Murtabak, all for breakfast … the best way to start any day! Champagne brunch in Singapore is another good way.

Any advice for people considering embarking on the trip of a lifetime

Use an expert! If you haven’t been somewhere talk to people who have. Your trip will be so much better for it. Nobody wants to come home to find out they missed something amazing on their trip.

Which country is next on your list to experience and why

I am off to Zimbabwe soon and hopefully Namibia. The Skeleton Coast looks hauntingly beautiful and any place the locals call “The land God made in anger” has to be seen.
