The avid traveller who is opening his kids eyes to the world
Whether spending long, lazy days on the beach, or taking part in endorphin-raising experiences such as climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge, there's one common bind – the fact that I simply love to travel.
Bitten by the travel bug at an early age, I went on to marry in Kenya before spreading my wings further across the globe. Visits to America, Australia, Dubai, Qatar and Cuba have followed, among other globetrotting adventures, each journey offering new and exciting experiences. I love nothing more than chatting to locals, experiencing part of what they experience daily.
Now a proud husband, father of two and national newspaper and magazines journalist, I place a huge amount of value on showing my children just how wide and beautiful the world can be, whether that's showing them the New York skyline from a helicopter, or dune bashing in the Dubai sands. Whenever my budget stretches, Team Trenchard travels.
Dubai is a particularly favourite destination. It's diversity offers plenty for Team Trenchard – from Bedouin camps in the desert, to helping my son spot the most sensational supercars.
Occasionally I might fly the coup without my beloved entourage, but rarely. After all, that wouldn't be particularly conducive to my reputation as a jet lag-beating journalist-cum-kid juggling ninja, would it?
