45 Countries Visited

3 Successful northern lights hunts

10 Whale watching trips

From a young age travel has been a passion for Darren ever since he stood at the airport as a child with his hands pressed against the glass looking at the giant jet that was to carry him across the globe.

He loves to immerse himself in the destination and culture, from the people, the food and local traditions. So far, he has been lucky enough to visit 45 countries over 6 continents with many more on his bucket list. Stand out destinations for Darren are Iceland for its varied landscapes and chances to see the northern lights, Greenland where he was amazed by a sunset Ice Fjord cruise in Ilulissat and Norway for the amazing scenery, autumn colours and varied activities.

One of Darren's most recent trips, which took him to the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands will always stand out a he remembers feeling so humbled to be walking beside king penguins and fur seals in their natural habitat.

A journey should always be savoured as it is as big a part of the trip as the destination itself - by combining rail journeys, drives and sea travel, you see more and appreciate just how big the planet is.
