Mr Wright, a veteran of the Second World War, claims he has always had the urge to travel and when his wife sadly passed away, he decided to sell his house and visit Gallipoli
on Anzac Day. Since then, he has travelled the world on a strict budget making sure that he saves his pennies throughout the year for his flights and accommodation. He also says that he sees things other tourists would normally miss because he chooses to walk the back streets of the places he visits or by taking buses/trains to nearby towns for the day – it pays to go off the tourist trail every now & again!
