About me


Greetings! I’m Michael (my friends call me Butters). And I like to travel! (especially if it revolves around eating.)

My love for travel isn’t really surprising. I’m Australian after all, and when you live on an island continent at the far end of the earth, the world out there is a pretty intriguing place. And if you want to see it, you’d better be willing to travel.

I’m now based in London, and much to the bewilderment of my colleagues, hold down a professional job while still seeing as much of the world as I can. After eight years here in the Northern Hemisphere visiting some pretty amazing destinations, I’ve finally decided to document some of my travels. So that I can look back one day and say, ‘Hey! I really did something with all that leave!’ (and all that money).

And if in the process it inspires you, or helps you to plan your own getaway, then that’s just ace.

So enjoy! And if you have any questions about any of the places I’ve been or want any recommendations, feel free to shout!
