About Us

Travel Connections Club
Principal Travel Agent

Hi my name is Alex,

I’m an Australian and grew up in sunny Western Australia.

From a young age I knew I wanted to travel the world. I got my first opportunity to travel when I went back to my fathers birthplace of Singapore.

Then it was off working in various parts of my own country (Australia) exploring Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Tasmania but still I don’t think there is anywhere better than Perth (we have much better weather).

In my early 20s it was time for me to really see the big wide world, I took some jobs working on summer camps throughout the USA in various places. This along with some connections I made through local baseball circles I was able to visit the majority of the USA. Then it was off to the UK to work there for about a year where I was able to see the UK and parts of Europe.

Extraordinary Travel Experiences

When I finally got back home from my long travels I still found myself wanting to travel at every opportunity I could, which meant taking long weekends away to Bali, booking frequent trips to different Asian and sometimes European cities where I have seen incredible places like Bangkok and Phuket in Thailand and Berlin in Germany to name a few. I would frequently use all vacation leave to go skiing in Australia, New Zealand and Japan.

Then I finally met my wife while travelling of course! My wife is Indonesian so Bali is quite quickly becoming a second home! Then not only did it become planning travel for myself it also became a planning exercise for 2 people and then soon 2 adults and a couple of young children. Young kids have not stopped us from travelling still making frequent trips back to Indonesia and still planning trips further abroad. Up next is another ski trip – maybe Georgia or South America or Colorado or maybe even somewhere like Iran…
