Warren’s been at Studytrips for 20 years and is a Hereford United fan – hence the grey hair! His worldwide adventures were slightly curtailed when he discovered that his wife had a fear of flying! These days you’ll usually find him under canvas on a French campsite! His favourite destinations are New York and Lundy Island (a rock in the Bristol Channel where he got married). When not in the office Warren is ‘Lycra Man, pounding the streets of SE London (not a good look), on a 5 a side pitch or playing with Sylvanians (with his 8 year old daughter, he points out). email me
