I had spent three years travelling overseas and had dabbled in the worlds of skiing, sailing and surfing. I was in my early twenties and it was all about meeting great people, being in different environments, being social and active during the day and into the night. So, I got a job within the travel industry, as it was the joy of meeting people, experiencing destinations and cultures, that I had decided I wanted from life.
After the arduous applications, I received my own travel licence on 14 June 2001. At the beginning I worked on TWAD and at the Geelong Advertiser, until TWAD could sustain me. At the end of August 2001, I committed to working fulling time within TWAD. Within two weeks the September 11 tragedy occurred, followed by sars, chicken flue, Bali bombings, the collapse of Ansett. It was a tough two years for all.
