About Me

This is Tom. He once challenged Big Foot to an arm wrestle and won. On a forfeiture. He set up a tech company at 18, visited his first Aman at 25, wrote his first blog article at 28 and three quarters and started talking as a pirate non-stop at 30. His idols are Gordon Gekko, Lord Voldemort and you.  He is also easily confused by first and third-person perspectives.

This is my personal blog regarding my travels around the world, all paid for by myself from money that I regrettably did not inherit, but made through my software company.  I’ll day bore my daughter about it one day, so will save you the trouble.  Lucie, my wife, travels with me and, yes, she did threaten me to write this to ensure everyone knows it.

I started this blog in 2015 because I am a millennial and it is my legal right to have a blog and believe everyone wants to hear my opinion.  In 2017, having spent enough on holidays to make any number of Daily Mail columnists deeply angry, I decided that this travel malarky was here to stay, so founded a luxury travel company with my wife.  Apparently, some people did actually want to hear my opinion, just they prefer to hear Lucie’s, which is why she runs it and I just make the tea.

All photos are mine, even the rubbish ones.  All words are mine, especially the rubbish ones.  If you come across a misspelling, it’s because your brain cannot comprehend how amazing I am at making up new words.

If you’d like to contact me, please do so for any of the following reasons:

  • You’ve said Bettlejuice three times and need assistance.  I have a particular set of skills that come in useful under these circumstances.
  • You have just opened a new 9 star all-inclusive, £45,000/n hotel in the middle of the Indian Ocean, with 5 restaurants ran by five different 3 Michelin star chefs that can only be accessed via a fighter jet, and you’re desperate to offer me a free stay to hear my thoughts.
  • You’re bored
  • Just because

“You absolute moron” – Tom’s imaginary friend

“Cease and desist writing this filth with immediate effect” – A real friend


  1. Hi

    Quick one – have you stayed anywhere in Mozambique?



  2. Ok, I am not a milennial but have also spent my entire life savings traveling the world (at times, with a husband and kids). I love your candor, sense of humor and wit! And like you, started a luxury travel ‘blog’, a word I detest, but use anyway. Looking forward to comparing notes as we both spend our hard earned money on something we truly love. Cheers!

  3. Dear Tom,

    Although I don’t meet any of your criteria, as per above, for contacting you , I thought I would send a message to say I look forward to welcoming you to Xigera Safari Lodge in two days time.

    Kind regards
