I’m Nick Holton, sole contributor to the Salty Sea Dog travel blog – part time surfer, photographer, artist and full-time hater of socks.
I live and work in Sydney having moved from Bristol, in the UK, back in 2014 seeking an escape from the drizzle to sun, sand and sea. Despite working 9-5:30 for a digital marketing agency, I’m pursuing my dream to be office-free; sat under a palm tree in paradise ‘working’ remotely!
Thanks to my parents, I’ve always had a passion for travelling and (according to Been) have covered a meagre 14% of the world in my 28 years. My ambition, set in 2013, is to visit a new country every year for the rest of my life and I’m lucky enough to have visited some magical places along the way.
Because I work full-time, I grasp any opportunity to travel and you’ll notice a lot of my posts are suited to those spending less than a month in any destination. Whether solo, with my lovely girfriend, Sadie, or with friends, I’m always seeking a trip that gets me off the beaten track and (typically) as close to the beach as possible!
