“The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Saint Augustine



Just give me a bit of your time and I'll fill in all the blanks and lay it down straight.

Before I go further let me tell you that you may be the kind of person that does not need my advice, and if that's you, then get on that plane now with my blessing. Honestly! After all – I did! Read about me here...

Now I'm not trying to blow my own trumpet here. What I did was risky but it can be done and furthermore it can be done whilst saving your money for the things you really need!

Most of you will be between 18 and 25ish (or you are concerned parents desperately seeking reassurance for your precious little munchkin) and you simply don't know what you're meant to be doing or what to expect. The information contained on the following pages is designed to take some of the worry out of independent travel and to let you know some of the pitfalls you may encounter in a live-in pub job, and on your working holiday.
