Ben’s love of travel really started when he was granted a year's working visa to work and explore Australia a decade ago.  This proved to be the start of many adventures as he has now visited 40 countries at the last count.  Ben prefers to wander off the beaten track and test himself by travelling like a local and the challenges that involves. He has the belief that part of the experience of travelling is to interact with the locals and to immerse oneself within different cultures.

Ben is glad to be part of the Discover the World team working with people that have similar passions to himself.

My Favourite Place

I didn't know what to expect before my trip to the world famous Icehotel. You can watch travel programs and documentaries but there is nothing like experiencing the resort at first hand. From the moment you leave the coach transfer it feels like you are on another planet. It was lovely to be away from the hustle and bustle of city life for a few days and embrace this unique experience. I was in the Cold room for my first night and had no problem getting to sleep as it was so peaceful cocooned in my sleeping bag. I would recommend choosing the cold option first as it was a pleasure to spend the second night in the warmth of the Arctic Chalet after a trip to the Lounge bar.
