Most readers here will know that my heart isn’t really in the normal office job that I am pained to live out year after year. I’d much rather write, run a tour or hotel business or any combination of the three.
Recently we have opened up our home to visitors and having honed my customer service and holiday planning skills as well as receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback; I am looking at starting my own tour business to supplement my day-job.
Having travelled extensively across the UK, Europe, North Africa and the Middle-East and having organised and hosted tours several times in the past, it seems as good as any to turn my hand to. Especially as I actually like doing it and meeting people.
I’d like to run both UK based and Egypt based tours; the U.K. in the summer and Egypt in the winter. Most foreign visitors come to London and never go elsewhere in the country, however an increasing number are either returning to the country a second or third time or opting to go a little off the beaten track and see what real life is like. Much like you can’t just visit New York and say you have seen all of America or visit Rome and claim to have seen all of Italy, the same is very much the situation here.
Here is the exciting part; here is the opportunity to shape my future career if any (as the teacher used to tell Bart Simpson). If you were visiting the U.K. which of the following would you be interested in touring.
I would be the guide, the driver, the witty eccentric English chap who makes your holiday a trip to remember and would collect you from the airport, quite possibly have you stay in my home or a nearby plush hotel and taylor make your holiday to see and experience whatever you like. This is only to help with some of my preliminary research but as you are all such a fabulous and diverse bunch of people, you’d be the sort of person I would very much like to welcome.
