The well travelled traveller
After a 30 year career in administration and management with one of Australia’s large life insurance/superannuation companies (which involved several interstate transfers), Colin these days is retired, living in the Peel Region south of Perth, with his wife Prue. Their two adult children and their families also reside in the area.
Both Colin and Prue have always had a love of travel, extensively in WA but also through many other parts of Australia. This, combined with a keen long-time interest in photography (Colin has qualified as an Associate of the Australian Photographic Society – AAPS), has led to an ongoing involvement in travel photography and photojournalism, including writing stories for Western 4WDriver Magazine, for over 20 years.
Always keen to get away from major towns and cities, this wandering couple (sometimes travelling with others but mostly alone) love the Aussie outback – the further out, the better. Always carrying plenty of recovery gear (and knowing how to use it), as well as emergency communication (Sat Phone, EPIRB, PLB), they enjoy researching and finding different places and different experiences along the ways.
Their means of transport over the years has included a Landcruiser Troopy, a 4WD Mitsubishi Canter Campervan (written up in Western 4WDriver), and for the past 10 years a Landcruiser 200GX towing an 18 ft Trakmaster custom built off-road caravan.
Whilst still enjoying good health and other things going well, Colin & Prue plan to continue their Aussie travel lifestyle for quite a few years ahead
