He has visited over 100 countries around the globe and virtually every country in Europe. He represented prestigious U.S. and European Tour Operators. Since his first assignment over 50 years ago as a travel host in Switzerland he has escorted tourists on African Safaris, to countries in the Far East, Australia and luxury cruises world wide.

Throughout his career he has contributed travel articles to the travel trade and has also been engaged in travel promotion in the USA. In Call at Six, Bags at Seven the author recalls some of the delightful, spiteful, sad and slightly mad tourists he has travelled with over the years. His recollections are told with dry English humour and illustrated with amusing sketches of some of these incidents, he gives us a candid and unique view together with the inside story of group tourism, sharing with us hilarious and umbelievable experiences that he has had.
