I've spent the last 12 years or so working as in international tour manager taking New Zealanders to countries as diverse as Ireland and Guatemala, Montenegro to Bhutan.I combine this with my travel writing which has seen me publish three books of travel adventures along with hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles. Currently I write for eight Fairfax provincial daily newspapers, including the Timaru Herald and am a regular contributor to Latitude magazine. I've been named NZ Travel Writer of the Year and won numerous other writing awards over the years.
I love travel (there's some nomad genes in the mix somewhere I am sure) and writing but what gives me some of the greatest pleasure is being able to introduce other people to some of the amazing places on our planet. Making sure they have the very best time and that they have nothing to worry about other than enjoying themselves is my aim. Some of my regulars have travelled with me up to 10 times, to all corners of the world.
I've also been so fortunate to have made some lifelong friends in many of the countries I visit. I am now working with many of these friends to prepare itineraries for you that can really only be developed by people with an intimate and deep love of their home countries and who are now also very familiar with how Kiwis like to travel (and who are now really good at understanding the Kiwi accent!).
