Travels - Mathew Browne

Countries

Flights

Capitals

Cruises

My passion for travel has taken me many places, mostly for leisure but since my photography work became professional, I now travel for business too. In 2018, I expect to visit several of these locations again for photoshoots and workshops.

1. United Kingdom

Wales is my home – I’ve visited every county, city and major town at some point in my life; reached its highest peaks and truly seen the best it has to offer. I’m so lucky to live here. I’m fortunate to have the Brecon Beacons, the Pembrokeshire coast, many castles and waterfalls plus the capital Cardiff all within a 90 minute drive of my home in rural Carmarthenshire.

I’ve also travelled extensively throughout neighbouring England. My work and family commitments often take me to London, Kent, and the south east of England. 

So far I’ve only managed to visit Northern Ireland and Scotland once each, but I hope to rectify that in the coming years.

Notable trips:

Nov 2008 – Belfast, Northern Ireland
Jul 2010 – Gibraltar
Apr 2011 – Edinburgh, Scotland
Apr 2015 – North Wales
Jul 2015 – Snowdon, Wales

2. United States

A vast country of eclectic landscapes and cultures whose sights I’ve only scratched the surface of. I first visited as a child in 1993 – my first family holiday. Since then I’ve returned many times – my repeat visits to Las Vegas are testament to its incredible nightlife and photo opportunities plus (relative) proximity to several national parks. I have no doubt we will return in the future.
