Simon Salter - Since I’ve known Simon, he has managed to cram a lot into a relatively short space of time. He’s managed to refurbish a thatched cottage, got married, ran the Maldon Mud Race, grown a beard, trekked 100km over the South Downs, driven the Plymouth-Banjul Rally AND driven a London Taxi from London to Kyrgyzstan all in the name of Charidee..
This is just a part of the enigma that is Simon Salter. He feels comfortable wherever he maybe, whether that would be taking it easy at home in Chelmsford or relaxing with a mint tea in the Djemaa el-Fna. As long as he gets his monthly pint of Guiness, he’ll be happy!
Simon has travelled the world extensively having stepped foot on five continents. He’s had the good fortune of travelling Australia during the Sydney Olympics, where he even took in a few sports. A far cry from the London Olympics heading our way in 2012!

Gavin London – I have been fortunate to know Gavin for seven or eight years through work and soon became apparent we shared a passion for exploring, adventure and marathon running, although I might be lying with one of those.
Gavin didn’t get a passport until the age of 22 and has made up for lost time by visiting South East Asia, U.S.A, India and most countries in Europe. He has made a brief foray into Africa with me, as I was lucky enough to chauffeur him and a Swiss chap around Morocco. Neither could drive although the Swiss guy had a license to drive a tank!
Gavin’s relentless pursuit for a bargain warrants him the ‘budget travel expert’ title, never letting an empty wallet get in the way of a memorable travel experience.
I have always joked with Gavin that ‘you are not a true traveller until you have visited…..’ unfortunately the teasing has stopped, as he has now visited most of those countries with the exception of Australia. Ha! He is planning to go sometime soon.
