About the Author

With over 40 years experience in the travel industry, and working for Goway for the last 17 years, British-born Robert Glazier has travelled to over 70 countries. “I have never met a destination which didn’t have something to interest me,” he says. His first foray abroad was from England to Switzerland on a school trip at the age of 14, and that was the start of a long journey.

His advice to other travellers? Always wonder what is around the next corner!
