Travel has been a big part of Troy’s life. In fact, when Lonely Planet tried to find Troy to join their team back in 2008, he was trekking in the Patagonian Andes in Argentina with limited access to mobile phone coverage and the internet.
Troy now works for Expedia Inc, the largest online travel e-commerce company in the world, working on the Hotels.com business.
His favourite destination is Morro de São Paulo in Brazil as it’s the ideal place to go to swim in crystal clear water, catch a ferry boat to a private beach each day, eat great food and have some well deserved rest and relaxation after a busy travel schedule.
A lactose intolerant vegetarian, Troy is now avid user of Lonely Planet’s new iPhone Phrasebooks: the “I am allergic to dairy” translation has been his saving grace on a number of trips where he has little knowledge of the language!
