I worked for Lonely Planet from 2006 to 2011 and consider myself blessed to have worked with the team on [Link Removed] Only saying this as I seem to still have my Staff badge showing :)
The most fun I have recently had on a trip was when I went to Tasmania in Feb 2012 for the MONA FOMA festival in Hobart. A wonderful few days on the Island. If you are travelling to Hobart I highly recommend the MONA gallery.
2011 saw me head to Bali and Lombok for the first time… I stayed away from the crowds as much as I could and spent a lot of time perusing ancient temples. A solitary, tranquil, restful couple of weeks.
The last “big trip” I made was to Iran and Armenia in 2009, to get in touch with some family history as well as soak up these ancient cultures.
I especially enjoyed checking out the beautiful blue mosque tiles of Esfahan; strolling through the ruins of Persepolis; unearthing the real Iran in Tehran.
Oh and so many more travels but I have gone on a bit already!
In travelling I am much the same as I am in working and playing: I take the time to enjoy all the music, film, food and drink, historical and cultural delights life has to offer.
