Story

Traveller | Digital Marketing Strategist | Publisher | Entrepreneur | Location Independent | Londoner
Introduction
Traveller - I've spent five years of my life travelling and will be spending more time travelling in the future. Trips include one month in Thailand, six months in Indochina (Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos), seven months in India, six months in the US and Canada, nine months in Europe. Numerous holidays in Goa, Spain, Greece, Turkey, the US, France, the UK etc. etc.

Digital Marketing Strategist - Most of my working time is helping travel publishers with their digital marketing strategy. I've been working in online media/marketing 16 years and including this in wider media 20 years. 

I take an ethical approach and deliver high value to my clients by providing consultancy and services 

Particular areas of strength include:
  • Strategy
  • Content Marketing/Strategy
  • SEO 
  • Conversion Optimisation
  • Brand/Reputation Building
  • Traffic Generation
  • Social Media
Publisher/Writer/Photographer - when not helping clients, I have some publishing projects with some long term plans to develop a few more websites in the travel sector.

Location Independent - well not all the time but working towards it. I've spent seven months on the road as a trial and hope to go full-time in the future.

Londoner - when not on the road I'm fortunate enough to live in London..the best city in the world :-)

Bragging rights
Five years spent travelling and more to come :-)

Any Interrail veterans or fans out there?

There's a big market for Europeans (Eurail for non-Europeans) to retrace their steps from their early adult life and embark on another Interrail trip.

Here's +Jools Stone story and experience of doing Interrail First Class

View from Glenfinnan Viaduct and More Romantic British Train Trips

You've probably all seen the classic steam train going across the Glenfinnan Viaduct? I can hardly bring myself to say it but you know the one from the Harry Potter film (y-y-yyyaaaaaawwwnnnnnn).

Anyway this is this pic is the view that you get across from the steam train on the viaduct across to Loch Shiel and the surrounding mountains.

At the fare left of the visible loch in this photo you can just see the Glenfinnan Monument which stands to celebrate Bonnie Prince Charlie's call to raise the Highland clans.

This is just one of eight romantic train trips in the UK chosen by +Jools Stone and myself..so have a read and let us know what you think :-)

Trans Europe Express - Train Travellers Anthem

Very excited about representing www.thetrainhacker.com on a European mini trip with rail travel writer extraordinaire +Jools Stone and the team at +Railway Stays 

This could be the first every "Kraftwerk" train tribute tour of Europe. 

In the meantime here's the legends themselves :-)

Something close to my heart as I've been de-cluttering gradually the past few months. Having only bought the bare minimum for the best part of a decade..this time round I'm freeing up loads of space.

Definitely good for the mind and soul and highly recommend it. After all do you really need all that stuff?! Great post from +Dane Findley

Hoi An (Old Town) - Vietnam

Hoi An is right up there in my list of travel highlights. It has everything a traveller could wish for..great people, amazing food, interesting history, unique culture, sandy beaches, the sea, green countryside with rivers snaking through it.

For sure I'll be back there one day :-)
