Burleigh Travel Sports Tour Co-ordinator
Pete has grown up playing all kind of sport, mainly concentrating on football. From the age of seven he has played for Aston Villa Academy until moving onto Arsenal Academy. Soon after he settled closer to home with Gloucester City Football Club and several other local teams which took up all his spare time.
At the age of seventeen his sport was stopped with a bad injury to his leg, but he replaced sport with travelling and moved around Europe, spending a total of four years in Italy working as Representative for travel companies to welcome customers to their holidays and make sure they enjoy their stay. Also spent one year in The Netherlands working for Nike to yet again stick to his sporting interests, as well as brief working spells across France and Belgium.
Returning to England and working for Burleigh Travel he can now work a job with his two main interests in Sport and Travelling.
Favourite Sports Tour Destination:
"Italy, aimed to spend maximum of three months but once saw and experienced the culture and sights, I returned for a total of four years. The Italian food to build up your energy was just a bonus!"
Most Memorable Travel Experience:
"The Netherlands, as well as being a busy but awesome country, I was pleased how my life changed there. Left England one year with no job and no accommodation, to work myself up to my own place and a job I loved to have a busy year and make a lot of new friends."
