Garvey began working at Lost World Adventures in 1996 as their Operations Manager. Since then he spent several years stammering in sales and is currently gaining experience writing blogs, editing content, adding flawed code and blurry images to the Lost World website. He began years of vagabond globetrotting in the late-1980's alternating seasonal jobs as a line cook with 6-month trips to Southeast Asia, Nepal, India, Mexico, China and Tibet. For over twenty years with Lost World he has traveled to most of Latin America from Mexico to Chile and Argentina (only El Salvador, Brazil, Paraguay and the Guianas have been left unscathed).
Roughing it, rolling with the punches and unwittingly finding off-the-beaten-path destinations are my specialty. In search of places without Lonely Planet guidebooks or hordes of budget backpackers (yes, I used to be one), embracing long airport layovers and uncomfortable overland journeys. The harder the journey, the greater the reward (and the longer the shower). Future travel plans include Bhutan and resuming the Silk Road in Kashgar where I left off years ago.
