Travel have been a major part of my life to date. I went on my first rugby tour as an energetic 8 year old where we left no stone unturned on a tour to Barry Island! As I am now in my 30th year I have been on a number of sports tours to many European destinations and further afield to the Dubai 7’s; the pinnacle however was the 2005 British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand. It was in New Zealand where the travel bug hit so like all students, I completed my degree and embarked on a gap year around North America, Australasia and home via Asia. China and Vietnam were a real highlight. I returned with long hair, a travellers beard and worn out credit card but with memories to cherish!  The reality then struck that I needed a job to continue my travel ambitions and after spending 4 years working in the school travel market I had little hesitation in accepting a role with Gullivers Sports Travel. Further travel has taken me around South America and Sri Lanka. (Iguazu Falls and the Inca Trail is a must!) The hardest question to answer is where to go next..?
