Mr. (Stephen) Robinson
Well, there sure are a lot of us. Robinson is, in fact, the 15th most common surname in the United Kingdom. It’s considered to be quite British. I, am most certainly not that. I’m truly Australian, with some of the best British sensibilities.
I’ve always appreciated the finest things in life and this affliction is only getting worse as I get older. I am embracing the fact more and more, and after spending the past 12 years travelling to the point of obsession, I feel it is time to channel all that I have seen, and will see, into a comprehensive regular journal, spanning my true passions - the constantly changing worlds of luxury travel, barefoot adventures, exotic food discoveries and lifestyle observations.
Bringing creativity to all I do is paramount to me. This is no ordinary “blog”. The goal is to create a source that resonates with many, but provides great discovery and surprise, with a touch of humour to readers who want something a little different.
A very great friend recently said to me “I love how you are still so curious about the world”. I think that about sums it up. I feel like a kid in a lolly shop out there, with something new around every corner. Time is of the essence and I believe there is not a moment to waste. Procrastination and indecision are my enemies.
I hope you find pleasure in the editions to come. I know I will love bringing them to you.
Some years ago the angels brought me a wonderful gift – a friendship with Stephen Robinson, a fellow traveller and lover of fine food and wine, exotic places and adventure.
It’ s been a joy to talk about glorious indulgence and share great finds, laugh-out-loud funny experiences and occasional disasters and those fabulous quirky things that really make you treasure the wide open road and all it holds. I’ve also loved following his observations in @flavour_fervour with images of glamorous airport lounges and the pointy ends of planes, exquisite food in high end restaurants and down little alleyways for the best street food, plus some of the top wineries… taking armchair travel to new heights. Everyone needs a travel/food/wine savvy friend like Stephen and I love that with a new website, he can expand and explore new worlds - observations on life, travel and cuisine. And in a longer format, he’s damned funny! Enjoy Mr, Robinson.

Any company or product I recommend will have been purchased or used at my own expense. I will have actually spent the night at the hotels, eaten at the restaurants, and drank the libations.
I will not recommend anything unless I have been moved by it and it has significance within my articles.
If some thing or some service is wonderful but has some problems, I will point out the problems whilst recommending it.
My recommendations will not have editorial influence. A businesses only role in my journal will be fact checking.
