Further details

He's back; but this time, he's got a computer! Budleigh Salterton's most famous citizen has been grounded by both the Home Office and his father, so he's set up GWH Travvel - two 'm's, two 'g's, two 'v's (a bit of a mix up at the printers).

Run from his bedroom in Budleigh Salterton, with the help of his feckless mate Toby Buntstick and the hindrance of his sister Charlotte, it's a one-stop travel-advice-events-management-website service, where each week, his schemes range far and wide.

Whether it's roaming the country lecturing would-be overlanders on how to pack a rucksack or finding someone a zebra for a corporate promotion, GWH Travvel stays true to its motto - "we do it all, so you won't want to".
