I joined Travel Nation in December 2021 after an imposed break from the travel industry due to a little known pandemic, during which time I supervised a gastropub. This gave me the chance to enjoy my other main interests - good food and even better wine!
When I am not exploring the ever-evolving Brighton foodie scene, I can be found hiking on the Sussex Downs or supporting my local football team in Brighton.
Brighton, East Sussex
Having caught the travel bug at a young age, I started my travels as a fresh-faced 20-year-old.
I started my career in the travel industry booking school trips to the USA and ski trips to the Alps, before moving across to luxury travel. After a sabbatical, I then worked for a tour operator, specialising in South East Asia and South America.
Scott has visited:
Eating out, hiking, or at a gig.
Bolivia. The people, the landscape and diversity just blew me away.
Siem Reap, Cambodia. Not only are the temples some of the most incredible sights I have ever seen but there are mountains, waterfalls and the Tonle Sap river all in close proximity. It's definitely worth giving yourself time to explore.
Camera, bug spray, a well-thumbed travel guide, a phrasebook and a pack of cards.
Toronto, Canada. Such a melting pot of cultures and the opportunities for ‘staycations’ would be amazing because the nature in Canada is astounding.
The quintessential East Coast backpacker trail in Australia as a young and inexperienced 20-year-old. Little did I realise that this trip would shape the rest of my personal and working life.
Either a safari in southern Africa or the Lost City of Petra in Jordan.
The best thing is definitely steak at Don Julio’s in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The worst is either a cow udder in Cambodia or a cockroach in Thailand. Bleurgh.
It’s a cliché but it would have to be NYC. In the city that never sleeps, you can always find something to do so 24 hours could be pretty action-packed!
Mardi Gras, New Orleans. I'm not sure it will ever be beaten.
