Head of Flights
When I first started travelling I hung a world map on the wall and started adding Pins – green for the places I have been to and red for the ones still to go. It doesn’t matter how much I try the red pins are still winning! I am dreaming of travelling to all 59 national parks in the USA, taking the train across Canada, soaking up the sun in Zanzibar or seeing how many Greek islands I can fit in in 6 weeks.
I have travelled on fly and flops, gastro experiences, been pictured holding a snake and popped to New York for the day for lunch. The strangest experience was arriving in Gambia in the eighties at the main airport and customs was an old wobbly kitchen table on the runway side of the hedge and when I departed the same table was on the other side of the hedge as security!
My best piece of advice is to embrace the local culture.
