Monday Meetings – Paul ‘Happy Hermit’ Jost

Posted on December 10th, by Peter Parkorr in Monday Meetings, Travel Tales. No Comments
Today the Monday Meetings introduce us to Paul, a man on various missions, who took the time to explain the How’s and Why’s of his travel philosophy. Since he wrote these musings, he has hitch-hiked from Catania, Sicily, all the way to Athens, where he’d found a boat to join as a crew member, and then spent a few months island hopping, learning to sail, and free-diving in deep lagoons.…

Monday Meetings – Olly ‘Deer Hunter’ Whittle

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… Olly along the Mekong So, without further ado, meet Olly!
