I'm a travel publisher based in Edinburgh with a background in publicity and marketing. I love to travel and discover new places and experiences.
It is often the case that some of the people you meet from the farthest corners of the globe are closer than you think. Although Owen was only from Scotland he arrived and I felt like I had known him for years. Perhaps it was his giddy enthusiasm for arriving on the boat or about his passion for welcoming people to great cities? Either way the 2 nights that Owen was here we covered so much conversational ground, met my mates, came to a gather on the boat and even managed to go to a family doo (which was why he was here) Owen threw himself in to the whole experience, even helping move the boat through Manchester. Like any friends you make on the canals, when we came to go our separate ways it was see you soon (when ever that will be) and not good bye!
