So who am I?
Well, I’m Alistair. I’m 32 years old originally from Scotland and have a wonderful job where I get to travel all over the world as a Deck Officer on a cruise ship. While I get to see some amazing places through my work the best part is that I get several months off at a time and can travel the world on my own or with some friends.
I started Pins Across the World as a way to write about my travel experiences and hopefully inspire some others to do the same.
Type of holidays?
I don’t do backpacking – nothing against those that do but I prefer my home comforts, therefore, the majority of my trips involve staying in nice hotels especially if I’m in a country with huge spiders!
I also tend to do most of my travelling on my own, I would love to do it with someone but my work schedule does make that a bit hard. There’s also something to be said about being able to just decide – I want to go somewhere and then just go – It also means you can just do whatever you want to do when you get there and most of the time you can guarantee you’ll meet other solo travellers.
