Living in the picturesque Cotswolds I was inspired to start working as a tour guide so I could share the amazing place I live in with other people and I look forward to welcoming you to the Cotswolds.
Let me tell you a bit about me and my life experiences.
I've been very lucky to travel the world and have visited more than forty countries across America, Africa, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and Europe, and still have many more on my list to see. Travelling has always been a passion, but it really kick-started with my 20, 000km charity bike ride from London in England to Cape Town in South Africa in 2010. The journey was the best experience of my life. I ended it on a high, experiencing the World Cup, and realised I had the bug to keep going. I spent the next year working hard to raise the money I needed to keep moving across the world. I worked as an English teacher in a rural Chinese town called Langfang before continuing my travel and work through Asia and on to Australia. I wanted to experience different methods of travelling, so during those four and a half years I cycled, rowed, walked, hitch hiked, motor cycled, use public transport and rode horses.
Since returning home to England I've started a family with my partner Maja; in 2016 we were blessed with the birth of our son, Eryk. Being a Dad hasn't dimmed my passion for travel and has inspired me to become a tour guide.
My favourite Undiscovered Cotswolds destination is Minster Lovell
I love spending a day relaxing by the Windrush River at Minster Lovell. It's such a picturesque location, ideal for a picnic, and it has some amazing walking routes. There's nothing better than going for a quick swim in the river to cool down on a hot summer's day.
My Most Memorable Cotswolds Experience
It's hard to choose one special experience in the Cotswolds as I have so many, but a firm favourite of mine is Southdown Farm. My partner Maja kept a horse on the farm so we regularly visited and soon became close friends with Michele who owns it. We've spent many hours there as a family feeding the animals, milking the goats, chopping wood and offering support in any way we could. Michele's become like family to us and we consider her Eryk's unofficial grandmother.
