Meet The Team: Dave

28/05/2014

Dave has worked here at eShores since the start of 2010, and has a wealth of experience, having spent most of his career working in the travel industry.

He previously lived in Greece so has had the opportunity to travel extensively around the country. He’s also travelled around Turkey, visited Hungary, as well as many other European countries. When it comes to long haul destinations he’s explored the highlights of Jordan and Israel, he’s spent a lot of time in the Far East exploring Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.  On the other side of the globe he’s visited Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica and the Bahamas, and has spent time in the Gambia and Egypt.

Here’s our 5 minute interview with Dave…

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Truthful, Caring & Reliable

Where is your favourite place in the world?

This is a hard one as I have so many... Ok can I chose two?
Number 1 - If I could live anywhere in the world it would be Singapore without a doubt, it’s so clean, safe, the people are friendly and it’s an amazing country with so much culture. It’s also so accessible to other parts of the world and it would be really easy to reach family and friends.
Number 2 - Has to be the tiny UNESCO city of Cesky Krumlov in Southern Bohemia, Czech. This place is breath taking and stunningly beautiful. Anyone who is a great explorer and doesn’t mind going off the beaten track I would highly recommend this for you.

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

Vietnam, The Philippines and Belize, the latter as I would love to dive or snorkel at the Great Blue hole.

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

I’m a massive Oldham Athletic fan and season ticket holder so I’m there at every home game and try to get to as many away games as possible. I love spending time with my family and friends and this generally includes going to the pub or for a meal. I also love going to the gym, selling things on ebay and like a spot of gardening too.

What are your essential items that you take with you on holiday?

Without a doubt my mobile phone, obviously money and I’m quite fair so definitely sun cream.

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

I’ve had to think long and hard about this but it would have to Tom Hanks along with Wilson, he’s done it before in the film castaway so could easily show me the ropes of survival, he’s also a funny guy so I’m sure we would have a right laugh.
