Brian Ogle

Editor

Likes to stay in the office and send everyone else off to do the travelling… unless it’s to do with fishing! Still chooses pen and paper ahead of technology, but he’s learning. On a rare trip abroad he only just missed being caught up in Putin’s takeover of Crimea, and uses this as an excuse to remain a home bird.

This multifaceted, creative genius is a self-confessed tree-hugger. If there’s a problem she can solve it. When she’s not writing about travel she’s lying in the back garden daydreaming about her next adventure. Champion DIYer.

This lofty USA-loving NInja has a supernatural gift for all things digital… which unfortunately doesn’t extend to his joke-telling. Hates vegetables.
