Glynn started his travels shortly after leaving school in 1999 and spent the first seven months exploring Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia before arriving in Australia, where he lived and worked for the next year.
After returning to the UK in 2001, Glynn spent the next five years working in both market research and as a property and construction consultant, returning to his favourite destinations in the Far East regularly. Having never lost his passion for travel, Glynn set off again in 2006, spending the next two years in India, Indochina, Indonesia and South America. In 2011, Glynn qualified with a First Class degree in Business Innovation and Enterprise from Oxford Brookes University before joining Audley Travel. His most recent trip to the region was with Audley when he returned to Bali, Java and Kalimantan.
Glynn enjoys a number of outdoor activities including scuba diving, trekking and football.
I'll never forget when…
Ijen Plateau is part of the larger Baluran National Park in Java, who's major draw card is the stunning Kawah Ijen, a beautiful sulphur lake which glistens turquoise in the Ijen volcano complex.
My most memorable experience would be climbing to Mount Ijen's crater rim before descending into the heart of the volcano to watch the labour intensive sulphur mining operation in progress. The sulphur laden baskets are carried from the crater floor and taken by hand all the way down the 4km route to the volcano's base.
The extreme natural beauty and surrealistic mine site is one experience that will stay with me forever.
