Featured Travellers

From A Traveller's Desk have started a new series to feature people who have taken up travelling seriously. People passionate enough to collect experiences. Travellers who inspire us to discover places ourselves. A series where we talk to them and share their insights and experiences with you and stir-up a few of you into a more serious travel.

When we started this blog, our only purpose is to document our own travel experiences.  We thought it can make a good read when we get older.  But then doing the same thing over and over again, we realize that our friends and other travellers have their own interesting subject to share, hence, creating this page to highlight and honour them and to give them the chance to help fellow travellers.

This page is dedicated to all our Featured Travellers who agreed to be interviewed and willingly revealed the secrets of their journey.  Feel free to browse each one of them by clicking the link. They all have been travelling for many years and am sure they have tips that all of us can learn and benefit from.  

Each of our featured travellers will forever be a part of our blog and their contribution and support will be treasured forever.
