Speaking this month we have:

  • Darren Winwood — St Helena – South Atlantic Ocean

    Discover the most extraordinary place on earth! Well that's what their tourism page says.

    Darren Winwood talks about his life long dream to visit the island and to discover the hidden charms of an island lost in time. Darren is currently studying an MBA at the university of Liverpool and his dissertation topic is to examine what activities attract the tourist to remote Islands with a view to assist the locals (Saints) in their preparation for the opening of the islands first airport. He will be spending two weeks on the Island this August.

    Darren is well traveled and has worked overseas for over six years, the majority of that time in the Far East.
