My traveling has only really just begun, in my early 20s’ I was concentrating on my University study to obtain a Bachelor of Business and Commerce and then moved up to Far North Queensland to Lizard Island where I worked for just over a year as the island resorts barman. After leaving this job I was able to then go on my biggest trip so far which was two month travelling around Europe mostly on the Topdeck Mega European Tour, of which you can read all about on this site.
loneXplorer has evolved over many years with my blogging experience not starting here but starting back in 2006 with the launch of THE TUBE, an Australian television blog which monitored and discussed all sorts of topics within the Australian Television industry and was very successful.
THE TUBE no longer exists as it was becoming bigger and bigger and required full time attention, which I just couldn’t offer any longer. However one of the most popular pages from THE TUBE continues to live on, the Audience and Contestant opportunities page for anyone living or coming to visit Australia and who may want to sit in on a free recording of a TV show.
During this time THE TUBE was once ranked the 204th most popular blog in Australia and even lead to a guest role one night on top rating Melbourne radio station 3AW as well as attending some media events most notably the launch of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s new TV channel ABC3 in Sydney.
loneXplorer was created as I found that there were not many travel websites that went into specific details about what to expect when travelling on group tours. The pivotal point in launching this site came when exploring Europe for the first time and joining a Topdeck tour, the target market for this tour is young travellers and I found that their simply wasn’t anything out there worth reading about prior to travelling to find out what to expect in any detail.
