G'day I'm Blinky! I've been working in tourism for over 5 years now and I have loved every second. Originally born in Wales, UK, I moved to Australia with my family when I was 2 years old. I grew up in a little city called Adelaide and when I turned 21 I decided to start exploring the world. I spent the better half of 2 years exploring in depth, North America, Central America, Europe and South East Asia. Upon returning to Australia I knew I couldn't just finish there and go back to a normal job so I decided to make a career change and get into the tourism industry. I spent a year working as a travel agent, helping plan customers dream holidays, then made the move to guiding. It has seen me travel for work to 5 continents and over 20 countries. I believe travel is more than just getting a stamp in your passport or a photo with a famous landmark. I believe that travel makes us better people. It helps us to understand how the world really work and how different, yet similar we can all be no matter the language we speak, the colour of our skin or the way we eat, we are all the same. Travel gives us the chance to make the positive change we need in this world. So pack your bags, bring your sense of adventure and prepare to see the world like you never have before. Come along for the ride with me in the Philippines, because after all we only have ONE LIFE!

Unforgettable Tour Memory

I think the thing that makes it all worth it at the end of the day is being able to bring people to a place that they have been dreaming of seeing for years. Although, as a guide, we get to see amazing places regularly sometimes you can forget that it's the first time others have seen something. The look on their face, one of pure joy and excitement, is priceless and that's why I love doing what I do.

Best Travel Tip

Pack half of what you think you'll need and bring double the money you'll think you need!
