About Symon

Hi I‘m Symon. I've been travelling for many years and have no plans of stopping anytime soon.

I have been to over 20 countries within the Continents of Europe, Asia, South America, North America, South Pacific and of course Australia. I have a goal to reach 30 by the time I am 30 and I am not far off.

To name my favourite destination is hard but if I had to name three there would be Peru, Hungary, and Italy.

I grew up in Cairns, Far North Queensland and then once I turned 18, I went overseas on a working holiday to London. Upon returning I planted roots on the Sunshine Coast.

When travelling I do what the locals do and experience the destination for what it truly is. I love getting under the skin of the local culture, meeting new people, or seeking once a lifetime experience.
All of which I add to make my clients' trips ones to remember at no additional charge.
