Ronald grew up in Singapore and spent his childhood hopping over to Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia on holiday. After studying accountancy at university he embarked on his first international escapade to the ancient cities of Troy and Ephesus in Turkey where he discovered a love of different cultures, architecture and history.
It was this trip that propelled him to book a six-month adventure to New Zealand, keen to see more of what the world had on offer and to experience a totally different way of life (and climate!). There he drove through the rugged landscape, stopping at small villages to meet the local communities, and to work on the vineyards and plant nurseries. Ronald became hooked on the feeling of being immersed in nature as he learned to fish, cook and rock climb, and he says that he loves the taste of freedom and adventure that travel can bring.
Ronald is the Assistant Finance Controller at Lightfoot Travel, based in the Singapore office.
