My Background

My interest in travel began way back when I was 25.  I bought a round-the-world ticket on P&O lines and left from Vancouver in the fall of 1968.  I got off the Canberra in Auckland, New Zealand and spent the next 3 months working and travelling the North and South Islands by motorcycle.  Then off to Sydney, Australia in early 1969.  I spent 3 months working and travelling up to the Great Barrier reef.  Then off on a 30 day cruise from Sydney to London, England.  I hitchhiked and stayed in youth hostels in England, Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland, Austria and Germany.  I got a job with the American Army in Munich.  The start of the job just happened to coincide with Oktoberfest in the fall of 1969.  After that I got a job in a ski resort in Switzerland for the winter.  Then off with friends to Greece, Monaco, Spain and Morocco.  I came back to Canada after 2 years being away.  I spent the next 30+ years in the computer industry before getting into full time travel consulting in 2001.
