ROAMING TRAVEL REPORTER

SPAR International

2012

As the UK representative on the 4-month See the World with SPAR campaign, I travelled to 12 countries around the globe, reporting on my travel experiences on the way. Equipped with a backpack, a first-generation Go Pro, and a handy lightweight laptop, I published weekly travel updates and stories from on the road: from Trans-Siberian Rail to road tripping in Australia.

 

Along the way, I met up with other country representatives and delved into the surprisingly interesting world of SPAR International, learning how this Dutch supermarket chain works across borders and cultures.
