who brings people together
through travel!


Welcome, Fellow Adventurers!

Hello! My name is David Skillan, and I'd like to take you on a journey of discovery to some exciting and exotic parts of the world!

My new book, A 1960s Global Odyssey: Around the World in 80 Months, will sweep you along with me on some of my earliest travels. You’ll experience the joy of discovering some of the planet’s most interesting places, just as I did!

I’ve been in the travel business since 1970. For nearly half my career, I operated my own successful travel company, specializing in African safaris and tours to other long-haul destinations such as Asia, Australasia, and Latin America.

During my lengthy travel career, I’ve organized, hosted, and led well over 200 tours, including more than 100 to the African continent and 100-plus to such diverse places as the Galapagos Islands, Turkey, Malaysia, Japan, Egypt, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Peru, and even Iran and Afghanistan.

I’ve also lived and worked in no fewer than a dozen countries, including Australia, South Africa, Thailand, and Ireland, and in the great cities of London, Berlin, Tokyo, Buenos Aires, and New York.

Safari njema (travel safely)!

Yours in everlasting travel,
