Ronnie caught the travel bug after lugging an oversized backpack around Thailand, and then from coast to coast in Australia, when he was 19. Since his return, he’s not ventured outside of Europe, though a trip to Vegas – to indulge his other passion, boxing, and catch a big fight at the MGM Grand – is long overdue. Well, he says it’s all about the boxing but we’ll not speculate here… When he’s not travelling, planning to travel or writing about travel, he likes to read, watch movies and play tennis. Or y’know, do the above while travelling. Having reviewed music for several years, he’s also our go-to man for gig info.
