I started at Travel Nation in 2012 on moving back to Brighton after travelling the Americas and the Pacific Islands. Leaving England for three and a half years and living in Central America sparked my passion for travel. Coming from the Isle of Wight, I am a water-lover at heart and my passion for sailing and surfing lead me to undertake a 2-man crossing of the Pacific Ocean, taking over 8 months and visiting 6 countries. I enjoy meeting new people, seeing new places, and trying new food!

Joined Travel Nation in 2012 after working in tourism and Hotels in Costa Rica.

I emailed TravelNation with a broad travel query and was contacted that day by an informed and interested member of staff. He talked through my ideas, helped me to decide upon a travel plan and then booked the flights required quickly and within my budget.

Couldn’t of done this trip without Travel Nation
Me and my sister went on a round the world trip from America to Fiji to Australia to Singapore then Sri Lanka, we booked our flights through travel nation and everything ran so smoothly especially with Fiji and our transfer to the port and having to catch a boat etc we’d of struggled organising t
Adam has visited:
Sailing or surfing the south coast of England, and failing to learn guitar.
I’m a secret geek! From Lord of the Rings to Harry potter and Star Wars, I can’t get enough.
The Kingdom of Tonga. The Yacht’s navigation system and one engine failed on us, so we spent over three weeks eating pineapple and getting lost around the reefs and inland mountains.
The Tuamotus Atols, French Polynesia. Having no expectations and being greeted by friendly people, great diving and pristine waters was a massive highlight! Spear fishing, visiting black pearl farms and swimming with giant manta rays were just some of the attractions of this unique chain of islands.
Mosquito net, hammock, knife, iPod and waterproof camera.
I always live from my backpack. I have an amazing tendancy to lose things if I start spreading them about a room!
Maybe the South of France or Spain. Nothing better than the combination of good surf, great skiing and glorious wine!
Probably a last-minute hitchhike to Morocco. My housemate and I ran away for two weeks, taking only a couple of bags and a tent (with no poles!) with us. Stomping about the Atlas mountains, eating tagine and visiting the souks in Fez were just such a culture shock to me back then.
Casa Surf, located near Playa Avellanas in Costa Rica. A tiny out of the way place, run by a Canadian couple. Freshly baked bread from the on-site bakery and a wonderful beach seconds away! The walk through the mangroves to the beach is a stunning experience, and the clear waters and surf is fantastic! (http://casa-surf.com/)
Playa Maderas in Nicaragua. A wonderful beach for catching Pacific-side sunsets and end of the day waves, overlooked by a fantastic rock formation and backed by rainforest. There is nothing better than ending the day with some mango while scarlet macaws fly overhead. Perfection!
Probably The Tuamotus Islands. It’s a pretty hard one to get to unless you sail there!
Probably meeting too many people from the UK. I love the mix of culture, backgrounds and countries of the people you meet when travelling, and love to find out about places I am unfamiliar with.
The Petra Temple in Jordan. So I can pretend to be Indiana Jones for a day...
Yes, all the time! I love travelling and staying in a community for extended periods of time. It gives you an opportunity to really get to know the lives and culture of the locals. I have worked throughout Costa Rica in National parks and schools, and in Australia in a surf shop, amongst others.
In the middle of the wet season in Central America. In a van. With holes in the roof.
Waking up to a pair of sea lions on the deck of the boat in the Galapogos Islands! It was tricky getting them to move on without a fuss!
Cheese sandwiches, tea and biscuits!
