My name’s Michael Turtle and you’re invited to come along as I explore the world until the money runs out, I get bored or I fall off the back of a motorbike (my biggest travel fear, by the way!). My blog isn’t a diary or a list of places to visit – it goes deeper to look at the people, the culture and the stories behind the brochures I hit the age of 30 and quit my full time job (snooze!) in the Australian media so I could travel the globe at my own pace and really experience the places I visit. I had worked as a television and radio journalist for some of the country’s biggest broadcasters but I felt like there was more out there in the world. I wanted to find stories that I was passionate about. I wanted to learn about other countries and share those experiences with everyone who was interested in the same things. I hope that includes YOU!
