Why do you love travel?
I love soaking in other people's' cultures. It doesn't even have to be in the form of foreign travel. In the US (where I'm originally from) one can have a vastly different cultural experience by just driving a few hours in some regions, or even across the city in some cases. To me, even moving from one place to another can be a type of adventure. I've moved 31 times and have lived in 17 different cities across two separate countries.
What’s the most interesting trip you've taken?
I used to play in a rock band and we somehow had a top ten hit in Slovenia, of all places. We headlined the New Year's Eve Festival in Ljubljana in the city centre in front of thousands of screaming fans.
There's even video proof! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ke3QeTvXPyI
Who you travel with?
My mum and sisters live in the US and my wife's dad and step-mum split their time living between Tokyo and Sydney. We love taking our children (both girls 8 and 2 years old) to see their grandparents, as well as traveling to other locations with them.
Name three things or places you'd recommend for families visiting Australia
We had a beach holiday last Summer in Byron Bay and it was a blast. Sydney has a lot to offer traveling families as well. I love MotoGP and motorcycle racing, so Phillip Island is on my personal list.
Your favourite family holiday experience
Not a holiday experience per se, but we used to live 20 minutes from Disneyland in Anaheim, California. Our last year living in the US we bought annual passes and would go almost twice a week. Why go on holiday when you can just integrate one into your everyday life?
