I joined Travel Nation in 2014 , however I have worked in travel for several years. I have just moved back to Brighton with my partner and our daughter.
I've always been a voracious reader and growing up reading tales of far flung places and exotic destinations, really left me no choice but to get out there and explore! I got the travelling bug early and after several months in South and Central America returned to the UK. I decided that working in the travel industry was a great way to continue my travels.
I love travelling and experiencing new cultures and new Ideas, to be able to help others do the same is a real privilege.
Distance learning with the Open University (English literature) so spent a good deal of time reading and writing on various South American beaches.
Up North (Leeds).
I have worked for STA Travel (3 years) and Hayes and Jarvis (4 Years) – so I have sold (and stayed in) anything from 9 bed dorm rooms (Brazil) to private pool villas (Maldives).

Good response and helpful advice
We had in mind the broad outline of a South America trip. Aaron was able to take this outline and work up a sensible itinerary which we discussed and then booked.
Aaron has visited:
Spending time with my 9 month old daughter Ruby or reading. (sometimes both)
Oh wow. Here goes... The Smiths, The Beatles, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers. No, can’t do it – too hard
In a jungle somewhere… or looking at the ruins of a once great civilisation
Belize totally blew me away – half Caribbean beaches, half Jungle – Mayan temples and rum punch !
A good book
Travel wash (Detergent)
Rucksack – definitely
Buenos Aires, It’s such a cool city. It’s very European at times but with great Latin American flavour. Plus the wine and Steak Obviously!!
Back packing in Mexico – I started in Cancun and the Shiny “Americanism” was such a contrast to the real Mexico.
Governors Camp, Masai Mara
Caye Caulker –Belize.
The diving (Hol Chan Marine Reserve ) is amazing in Belize plus you can get fresh lobster and mash potatoes with as much rum punch as you can drink for about £4.00
People who travel but still want the familiarity and comforts of home
The list is endless … I would love to do the Trans-Siberian Express (Train from Moscow to Beijing via Mongolia)
Termites (taste like peanuts) - Mmmm
Carne Asado in Argentina was definitely up there with the best! (Open pit barbeque – Usually including beef, pork, pork ribs, sweetbreads, blood sausage and chicken)
Lappa in Rio –Lappa is as suburb of Rio that is famous for its street parties
