Hi, I’m Andy T!
Most of my life has been involved with travel in some way or another. This site used to be called Travelling Type when I was a freelance travel writer / blogger. I’m not travelling so much these days, as I’m settled in Brisbane with my family and working as an eLearning developer. When I get the chance, I love visiting Tasmania and I dream of returning to Spain.
The ’T’ stands for my last name, Tope. While working with several other Andys, I was dubbed ‘Andy T’ and the name stuck.
Things I enjoy doing every day include visual design/communication, writing, reading, eating (especially anything with pesto on it), listening to music, walking, exploring and being silly. Things I enjoy doing less frequently throughout the week include drinking beer, watching movies/TV series and playing piano.
Some of my heroes are: George Orwell, Laurie Lee, Rick Stein, Nils Frahm, Roger Moore, Audrey Tautou and Abigail King.
I also love hanging out with my family, my cocker spaniel Cookie and I try to get away as much as I can.
What will you get on this site? Brisbane – what to do in and around the city, including day trips and weekend getaways. There’ll certainly be some history and mystery in there too.
Thanks for stopping by!
