Travel for me is about discovering the world with a spirit of adventure. Discovery and adventure can take place half way around the world or close to home, as the articles reveal. They are designed to give you the reader a sense of my experience, and provide practical information such as how to plan out a trip and what might be expected. I attempt to present a balanced perspective on each destination to help readers make truly informed travel decisions.
Those who travel have an opportunity to witness first hand changes in the natural environment associated with climate change and pressure from the global economy. Communicating this information by word of mouth, writing letters to those who can influence change, and contributing to effective pro-environmental charities assist in preserving at risk destinations. With the aim of educating and encouraging action I present environmental problems in my articles whenever applicable, such as the demise of marine ecosystems and sharks that have largely remained hidden under the waves.
