Meet the Team: Gavin


Gavin has worked at eShores since April 2007 and has a passion for travel. He’s explored many long haul destinations including the USA, South Africa, Egypt, the UAE, as well as many places in the Far East and the Indian Ocean. He loves working in travel so he can share his experiences and help others get the most out of their holidays.

Here’s our 5 minute interview with Gavin:

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Friendly - Honest – Reliable

Where is your favourite place in the world?

Cape Town… It’s such an amazing city, with such a diverse range of things to see and do. Activity sports one day, relaxing on the beach the next, squeeze in a bit of wildlife spotting and then the  chance to enjoy some of the best food I’ve ever eaten, all washed down with some amazing wines… oh it’s making me want to go back!

What are the top 3 countries on your ‘bucket list’?

Vietnam is at the top of the list, although I’m going in a few days so that’ll soon be ticketed off (very excited). Will make sure I pop some pics on our Facebook page when I get back. The other two places are both in South America, Brazil being the next on the list, followed then by Argentina. I’m hoping to tie these both in to one multi centre holiday, so fingers crossed I can tick them both off the list in the next couple of years.

What do you like to do when you’re not working at eShores?

I love socialising with my family and friends, and we generally like to spend our time eating out. I also enjoy keeping fit (need to with all the eating I do) and usually do this with a mix of running and cycling. Travelling is also a passion, so when I get the opportunity and the finances allow it, I love to explore new places.

What’s your top tip for packing a suitcase?

I’m rubbish at packing, so I’m probably not the best to ask. I always leave it until the last minute, then ram it all in. Suppose if I had one tip though, it would be to make a list of the essential bits to ensure you take everything you need. 


If you were stranded on an island, which celebrity would you choose to be with and why? 

Bear Grylls… My survival skills a pretty limited, so I’m being led by my stomach with this decision.
