A keen traveller from a young age, Alasdair has explored various parts of continental Europe, North America, Africa, the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and China. He read Classics at Cambridge, and took advantage of the long holidays to go travelling. His excursions included inter-railing around Europe, a rugby tour of Australia and a Mandarin course in Chengdu, Southwest China. After a year spent teaching, he is now studying law, as well as planning a trip to Cambodia and Vietnam. He is a keen rugby player and skier, and still has a long ‘to do’ travel list.
