The idea came again and again every time I would be planning a trip. What to take to fit in? What to take to cover all my needs without coming back with lots of things unused only to have to wash them and put away? What would I need that I wouldn’t be able to buy there? I would call and email friends who I knew had been there to ask them and this could take hours and hours over days or weeks.
If I would find a resource like w2w useful maybe other people would too.
The great thing about travelling is that you meet amazing people and they helped me get the guide together, comparing notes, adding in extra notes or writing lots when there were places that they had travelled that I didn’t know. The website is a collaboration by people who love to travel.
Perhaps I’m a typical Sagittarian – I love to travel, I love to have lots of things on the go and can never sit still for long. I have had my own business since my early 20’s and at 52, I couldn’t imagine working for anyone else. The freedom to decide when and what I do is really important to me. I have recently opened a bar in Cape Verde as well as business interests in the USA and UK.
