The pursuit of good hiking and delicious cuisine has taken me to many different places in the world. When I plan a holiday, I am always on the look out for accommodation with a unique character, dishes created with fresh, local ingredients and most importantly, a schedule that allows you to appreciate the beauty of a destination.

From planning ryokan to ryokan walking holidays in Japan, to crafting an exclusive family vacation in the African wilderness, I always feel a great sense of achievement when my guests return happily from an epic journey in a remote corner of the planet.

Trying different cuisines, learning about other cultures, and appreciating the many spectacular landscapes across the world have been my long term commitment since I graduated and they keep me on the move from one continent to another.

Aside from my many hobbies, I find time to understand the benefits of sustainable development and learn how to create a better world through tourism.

Travel nuggets

  • Always check the sunset and sunrise time before you travel. You may not want to stay indoors when the sky turns into a painting of magical colours.

  • Try to plan your travels one week before or after the high season, when there are fewer tourists around.

  • Take a stroll in Harajuku at the weekend and take note of how fashion forward teenagers of Japan are.

  • Arrive 30 minutes early and get backstage access to the Beijing Opera to see the actors putting on their make up and performing special pre-show rituals before the show.
