Life is in the detail

Be sure to sneak a kiss on the lips from the friendly resident Giant Potato Cod at Neptune's Arm (Vamizi, Mozambique).

I have extensive travel experience throughout Far East, Indian Ocean, Africa and Middle East.

My travels

Travel Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  • Visit as many of the weird and wonderful Islands on our Planet Earth as possible - starting with the Galapagos Islands
  • Dive with Great Whites (No Cage)
  • Visit Cuba, before Fidel Castro dies.
  • Parachute over the barrier reef. In an ideal world - wearing my scuba gear so I can land in the sea and go straight into a shallow dive
  • Conquer my fear of snakes - water snakes in particular

Best Moments

  • Conducting a safety stop at the end of an amazing Night Dive in the Red Sea with a Whale Shark swallowing enormous mouthfuls of Plankton - only centimetres from my group of shocked divers.
  • Celebrating the general manager of Vamizi Lodge's Stag-Do on a Sand Bar in the middle of the Indian Ocean. After copious cans of Laurentina, an unnecessary amount of Boerewors sausage and the stag setting off a red smoke flare from his derriére, we just about managed to carry the Briar and ourselves back to the boat before being buried with the little patch of sand by the incoming tide.
  • Hiking the Western Himalayas for Charity.

Toughest Travel Moment

  • Coming Home

Weirdest Travel Moment

  • Swinging outside a moving train in India to cool down, remarking to self how refreshing the frequent blasts off water coming from somewhere outside were; consequently realising the moisture cooling my face was in fact coming from underneath the toilet carriages.....
  • Having to part with a Remora that kindly attached itself to my wetsuit. Tricky business.
  • Whilst trekking in the Sinai Desert, coming across a very 'aromatic' plantation in a low lying oasis that was heavily guarded by Bedouins carrying AK47's.
