About

The aim of my web site – worldoftravelling.com – is to promote and encourage independent worldwide travel.

You’ll find a range of information on this site – including reports, blogs, and country profiles, all of which I hope will encourage you to visit some, or all, of the countries yourself.

A lot of the countries I have visited offer plentiful opportunities for volunteering – a great way to get to know a country and ‘part finance’ a trip.

My first taste of ‘travelling’ took place in 2001, when the opportunity to travel extensively in South East Asia presented itself – a trip that was to change my life forever!

Since then I have had the privilege of visiting some incredible places, meeting some amazing people, and building some wonderful and lasting friendships.

Most recently, over the past five years, I have been visiting Latin America (South and Central America), a fascinating continent, which you can read more about in my blog.

I hope you find the content amusing, interesting, but most important of all – inspirational!
