At last count I have travelled to 42 countries. Myself and my beautiful wife usually travel on a budget staying at budget to middle end accommodation choices, mainly because I want to have the funds available to get as much out of the travel experience as I can.
I love visiting new countries, learning some of the language and trying to use it. I have found travelling has opened my eyes to the world, respecting other people and cultures, their passions, their everyday lives.
I see myself a a bit of an ambassador for my country as well, showing respect, intrigue and humour to my hosts in another country to break down cultural and language barriers. My fondest memories of my travels usually involve many hours of socialising with others who know little or no English and us knowing little or no of their language, but still being able to learn and enjoy each other's company.
My philosophy.. "No matter how much it costs you, always see travel as an investment. An investment in life"
