Brendan Breen

Brendan Breen, our Managing Director, experienced his first real taste of travel on a summer J1 working holiday visa to New York nearly 20 years ago! Far flung adventurous trips have always been his thing – from driving around Australia in a VW Kombi to climbing Kilimanjaro, and from canoeing the rivers of Madagascar to hiking the Chapada Diamantina in Brazil. 

Lately, however, three young kids have made for a change in holiday style! The Algarve is a regular favourite for Brendan and family – beautiful coastal national parks, great fresh fish, superb weather and gorgeous beaches. Brendan also like to visit Sicily, where they famously keep all the best wine for themselves and Cannes in sping and autumn when there are less crowds. Brendan’s favourite cities are Rome, Vienna, San Diego & Stockholm.

A big fan of driving holidays, for a long-haul adventure Brendan’s choice would be California to drive the Pacific Coast Highway or South Africa to drive the Garden Route and visit Kruger National Park in search of the big 5.
