For the past 15 years, I have managed my own business, Splasch Pty Ltd, supporting the sales and marketing of international dive destinations - firstly for Christmas Island, and most recently for Wakatobi Dive Resort in South-East Sulawesi, Indonesia. I am also an Auditor for both Tourism Operators and Destinations on behalf of Ecotourism Australia.
Travel - preferably sustainable and at a slow pace - is my passion, thus my penchant for scuba diving, kayaking, hiking, and biking. My scuba diving and love for the ocean has taken me to many amazing dive destinations including Christmas Island, Pulau, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Maldives, and of course Australia. I've also enjoyed many multi-day treks including hiking to Mera Peak in Nepal, trekking the Simien Mountains through to Lalibela in Ethiopia, the Salcantay Trek to Machu Picchu in Peru, the Portuguese Camino from Porto to Santiago de Compestela, and the beautiful 3 Capes Trek in Tasmania. As a bike rider, I've completed several multi-day bike rides including a 7 day ride around the south west of Western Australia, a north to south bike adventure along the East Coast of Tasmania, and a 1,000 kilometre ride around the island of Taiwan.
Discovering my own backyard and unearthing the joy in the everyday on my eBike is, for the moment, my new normal - an unexpected grounding but one which provides mountains of pleasure, a pleasure I'm delighted to be able to share.
