The Essential Travel Site that Broadens The Mind

About Me

The road that lead me to Tubs Travels

Tubs in Traverse City Michigan - 2016

Hey there, my name is John but my friends call me Tubs. There is an old saying I have always tried to go by which states that “travel broadens the mind” and I can totally agree with it. Read on to find out a little bit more about my love of the travel industry which lead to me starting this helpful travel information site, Tubs Travels. I will bring you some helpful travel information and try to point you in the right direction to handle situations you may find you have to deal with and information for use on your own personal adventures. I used to work within the travel industry for over 15 years.

I was, as we say over here, born and bred in Northern Ireland. I left school early at 16. Like many of you reading this, school and I didn’t really see eye to eye. Travel has always been in my blood from an early age, so to speak. I always had a passion to travel and see the world from a young age. I hadn’t really travelled but knew I wanted to. Northern Ireland is a small country. I wanted to experience more diverse cultures and experiences that the world has to offer us all. So, I had to figure a way of working out what I could do in life.

Fortunately, one of my best friend’s Sisters (Cathy) worked for a transatlantic tour operator at this time. She suggested that I would be able to travel if I worked within the travel industry. So, I dropped out of school and went to college to study Travel and Tourism. I immediately fell in love with the industry as I was good at my job and thrived on learning about everything to do with the travel industry. It opened up many avenues for me that I knew I had done the right thing and that I had joined the right industry to work in.

I have extensively travelled with both my career in the travel industry and on a personal “just love to travel” level.  I’ve seen many countries and travelled on many an adventure. I’ve cruised on a small yacht in the Aegean Sea. I’ve flown First Class. I’ve been on Cruise Ships and Concorde. I love the industry, simple. Tubs Travels will offer you my experiences, my travel tips and some helpful travel information that just may help you with a query or question that you have. 

Anyway, feel free to explore my site. Hopefully you will be able to gain some knowledge or information for your own travels.
