Story
Tagline
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

Visiting Kyoto-in, Daitoku-ji Temple was one of the highlights from my spring 2014 trip to Japan. +Yoshiyuki Miyake has created this beautiful video of the seasonal transitions at the temple. If you head to Kyoto you must visit this temple for its peace and tranquility.
 
Movie of my most favorite temple, Kyoto-in, Daitoku-ji Temple. Hope it helps you like Japan and Kyoto. Watch it listening your favorite music, please.
一番好きなお寺、大徳寺の塔頭、高桐院の動画(紙芝居)を作ってみました。BGMはありませんので、お好みの音楽を聞きながら、御覧ください。

Survey: Travel industry take note – what travelers want most in online search and shopping

No real surprises..move along nothing to see here :-)

"It appears what travelers want most when it comes to searching and shopping for travel is price transparency, personalized offers and confidence in knowing they are getting the best bang for their buck."

Is there a Digital Holy Grail for the travel industry when it comes to serving the online search and shopping needs and preferences of travelers?

The surprise for me was that only 19% starts with search. Independent research shows 61% turn to search for inspiration, which should result in a higher percentage? Source: https://www.thinkwithgoogle.com/research-studies/2014-travelers-road-to-decision.html slide 7.

Maglev Train

Anyone else fancy travelling at 500 kmh (311 miles) per hour?

Such a great video!

That's London to Paris in less than an hour :-)

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 :-)
