One Heck of a Summer: Birmingham gets a Globe Trotter

We are getting a bit over excited here at HQ and because we love globe trotters so much we've offered one heck of a summer to Birmingham resident, Paul Hooper.Paul, who runs his own company and lives with his wife and has two grown up sons, previously decided to postpone the option of going travelling to focus on his career and family. In need of a career break, he applied to become our Brummie Globe Trotter and particularly impressed the judges with his travel experience and enthusiasm for making the most of his free time.The judging panel was also very impressed with Paul’s writing skills, which will soon be showcased on his very own blog.From today, Paul will begin his journey by showcasing the best of his home town Birmingham as part of a trip of a lifetime that includes travelling over 25,000 miles, spending over 40 nights away, visiting eight cities across three continents – in three months – including New York, Barcelona and Tunisia. He will get the whole 5* lifestyle, equivalent to a £15,000 trip.
