Monday Meetings – Olly ‘Deer Hunter’ Whittle

Posted on November 5th, by Peter Parkorr in Everywhere, Monday Meetings. 2 comments
Monday Meetings is a weekly feature on people who are busy ‘breaking the mold’. Using their initiative, each of these people has taken control of their life to do what they feel is most important – whether that is seeing the world first hand, starting a business, or learning to talk to animals. (There’s no-one lined up for that last point yet, so if you’d like to get in touch… ) The first four people we meet were interviewed with their travels in mind, but I will be visiting them again later in the series for a more rounded perspective… So, without further ado, meet Olly!

Or, ‘The Beautiful But Scary Travel Bloggers of TBEX Girona’.
They’ll be coming round the mountains when they come, they’ll be coming round the mountains when they come… Ah, travel bloggers, there is a trend of only being in the same place as each other these days isn’t there? It’s like some kind of twisted wedding season, enjoyable as it is.…

Quickest Travel Video Competition Entry in the World Ever, Maybe

Posted on October 15th, by Peter Parkorr in Everywhere, Video Adventures. 2 comments
Last week I spotted a few travel video competitions on the Jobs board of Travelllll.com – and its been a pretty hectic week since. On Saturday at 5pm GMT, I got the chance to start reading about the WorldNomads competition properly, and realised it was worth a shot, with the prize being a 10-day filming assignment at Rio Carnival. The deadline?…
