A finalist for the 2008 Australian Society of Travel Writers award, Bruce Holmes is a seasoned traveler and an incredibly talented writer. While it has always been a calling, Bruce launched himself into his travel writing career fully after teaching English in Sydney. To date, his written and photographic work has appeared in many mainstream magazines and newspapers around the world.
Quite simply, Bruce's articles betray the fact that he's probably one of the nicest travel writers currently active. He works with a great deal of positivity and heaps of character - you could recognize his work even if the credits were hidden.
Perhaps the best travel writer to only have one name. Dave's personal travels have taken him around the world where he indulges his passions for writing, photography and mountaineering. His current project involves tasting wine at every producer in the Napa Valley (which will take just shy of ten years in total). Dave is also the founder of the brilliant Dave's Travel Corner web resource.
His own writing is a master class in good travel journalism, but his greatest gift to us is the aforementioned Dave's Travel Corner. It's a site renowned for its excellence and something every travel junky should visit and, subsequently, become lost in.
