About Me

Hi my name is Brian Ashworth

Originally from the UK I now live In Melbourne, Australia

I started this website in February 2019 at the age of 64.

This is my second website with the first being www.anewhouse.com.au which I started in 2009.

Over my life I have flown well over a million miles and taking several hundred individual flights.

I have enjoyed staying in accommodation ranging from backpacker hostels to $1,000 a night hotels.

I have visited 23 countries. ( To count as a ‘Visit’ I need to have left the airport, or got off the train)

As well as flying I also enjoy travelling by trains and ships.

In the past I travelled extensively for work and achieved Gold Frequent Flyer Status.

These days as I am retired I travel less and typically alternate between Basic and Silver Frequent Flyer Status.

I would still fly internationally around 3-4 times a year.

Some travel is for leisure and some as a volunteer for the charity Disaster Aid Australia.
