Dave, together with his partner Claire Johnson and their son Dylan, has owned Jetset Margaret River since mid-2002, and the original plan was for him to be behind the scenes. However, he has found that he quite enjoys talking to people about travel, and helping them to develop their plans, so has been busy over the past 7 or 8 years developing his consulting skills.
Dave and Claire have both travelled extensively in Asia (Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Tibet, China and Hong Kong), Europe (UK, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Scandinavia, Croatia, Greece), Southern Africa (Zimbabwe, Malawi, Botswana, Namibia), North America (USA, Canada), New Zealand, and most Australian states. Dylan is a great traveller too, and has already explored parts of Thailand and Cambodia, Bali, NZ and bits of Australia!
In the last 5 years Dave has developed a passion for snowboarding, and is now familiar with many of the snowfields of the South Island of NZ, as well as the Lake Tahoe area in the US, and a couple of the Canadian resorts. Next on the list is Japan and he already has good knowledge of this destination through research done for clients.
Recent educational trips have included Phuket, Koh Samui and Bangkok, Hong Kong, San Francisco, and several parts of New Zealand.
