Travel has always been at the forefront of Michael's mind. A visit to the awe-inspiring city of Chichén Itzá in Mexico, provided the inspiration to study archaeology at university. A gap year beforehand in Southeast Asia — and two interrail trips around Europe — were preceded by several years of teaching English in China and in Spain.
After many adventures he made the decision to return to the UK and embark upon an exciting career in the travel industry. Whilst his love for Latin America is unrivalled, his grandmother was also from Argentina, meaning he always has family members from the continent that he can call upon for a bit of local knowledge.
When Michael is not travelling round the world, he greatly enjoys reading travel writing, cooking, trying new foreign cuisine and kickboxing.
I'll never forget when…
While at Rabida Island I was lucky enough to see a sea lion pup up-close. Seeing the sea lion from just a few feet away and witnessing its playful and carefree demeanour was just incredible and for me summed up the Galapagos. For this reason I encourage all to visit this once-in-a-lifetime destination.
