His hobbies include street photography, collecting very small rocks from beaches around the world, and writing interesting author bios.

  1. i'm only 17 and i've clocked up 32 countries so far, I hope one day to beat the 100 mark! Hearing others travel plans and tips for trip planning is so inspiring and motivational, and all the advice is really useful thank you!

  2. Fantastic advice from all of the speakers, thank you, this is really helpful because I am going on a RTW trip in January 2015. I have opted for buying a RTW ticket, and are planning to travel for six months but the ticket is flexible enough that I can change my dates without extra cost. Thank you asking the question about travelling with cabin luggage. I am convinced travelling light is the way I need to go.  Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?
