Meet the Team: James


We’d like to welcome back James, who originally started working at eShores early in 2014, but left a few months ago, to be closer to home after he and his wife had their second child. Now his family are getting used to their newest arrival, he was keen to start back.

James has worked in travel for most of his career, always working for luxury tailor-made companies, so has always been well suited to the role here. He’s also travelled extensively so has a wealth of knowledge and experience.

He’s travelled around a lot of Asia, taking in everywhere from China in the North, to Thailand and Malaysia in the south. He’s a huge fan of the Maldives, and has visited many of the islands there. He’s explored a lot of the Caribbean too, as well as a few places in the USA and Europe. So we’re confident James will be able to assist with any of your enquiries.

Here’s our 5 minutes with James… 

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Friendly, Relaxed and Genuine

Where is your favourite place in the world?

I've been very fortunate to travel to host of luxury destinations however without a doubt my favourite is the Maldives. There really is nowhere quite as beautiful as the little atolls there, the beaches are amongst the best in the world and the water is warm and clear, perfect for snorkelling and diving. It’s one of the few places where I can truly switch off and relax.

What are the top 3 countries on your bucket list?

I'd love to go to Vietnam and Cambodia to really experience the culture and food. I'd love to travel to Bora Bora for a few weeks to see how it compares with the Maldives, it's just the massive flight that puts me off!

What do you like to do when you’re not at work?

I have a wife and 2 children, a boy and a girl and I spend as much time as I can with them going to the usual children places such as farms, play centres and walks along the front in Lytham. Apart from that I try to get the gym as often as I can and spend most evening relaxing with a good book.

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

I always make sure that I pack a couple of good books, usually by James Patterson or James Herbert to enjoy by the beach or pool. I'm not a massive Social Media person so I could probably do without my phone!

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

It would be a tough call but I think I would have to go for Dwayne Johnson, he seems like a pretty cool guy who would keep us entertained and would no doubt be good at drawing attention to us!
