Adventurer since birth
Adventuring and exploring is born within you or you are born into it. I was lucky enough to have a strong exposure to both. My grandfather and my father were both soldiers and were constantly on the move. After the Mau Mau insurrection in Kenya and the land reclamation program of post-independence Kenya, they moved out of farming and founded and built up Abercrombie & Kent. I grew up surrounded by the excitement and the travel that ensued. So from a very early age I would fly from Africa to various parts of the world with an old suitcase and a large unaccompanied minor satchel slung around my neck. I always felt excited as I headed to the airport. Another journey, another experience. How lucky I was (and still am) to have been given the opportunity to become an experiential traveller from such an early age.
