What was the first country you visited? Who with and why did you choose it?
France as a young child with my family. We used to go on camping holidays to France pretty much every year until I was about 13 or 14, sometimes even twice a year. (I didn't choose but enjoyed going!)
When did you start a travel lifestyle? What inspired that change?
I don't recall ever 'starting a travel lifestyle' as such. Travel is just something I've always enjoyed for as long as I remember.
Do you have a base you travel from? Or is it continuous travel? And why do you choose that style?
I don't travel continuously. I live in the UK and travel from there at regular intervals. I prefer it that way for a number of reasons, including family ties and the schooling needs of our children.
How do you fund your travel lifestyle? Is it something you do when travelling or are you a saver?
I run two businesses. One is an internet marketing company (www.dedicate.co.uk) that specialises in online tourism marketing (of which www.aluxurytravelblog.com is a part). The other is also tourism-related - we have our own vacation rental business (www.kendalcottages.com).
If you could tell yourself one tip before you started your travel lifestyle, what would it be?
What does "Living The Dream" mean to you?
It means living life to the fullest and being able to work if and when I want to in a job that I enjoy, and having the freedom to spend time with family and friends whenever I choose.
