37. Justin Lorrimer on Travelling with Kids, How to Plan an Epic Holiday and Turning Your Experiences into an Income

If you work in the hospitality industry, you know how beneficial it can be to hear about other people’s success stories.

Each Monday, join Adrian Easdown as he has enlightening chats with successful folks in the hospitality industry around Australia. If you’re involved in anyway way with caravanning, running a restaurant or working with any other sort of hospitality-based business, you’re going to love this show.

In this episode I have the pleasure of chatting to Justin Lorrimer, who with his 3 kids and wife have spent that last 3 years travelling around Australia. They have seen some amazing sights on their trip and have some incredible advice for families that are looking to do similar trips – or even just wanting to survive the short weekend getaways.

Justin and his wife have managed to fund their trips through building partnerships with caravan companies, tourism boards and caravan parks across Australia, as well as providing useful advice and sharing their journey on their website, Trip in a Van. Justin is a great bloke and when you hear about some of the experiences he has had you’ll want to pack up your own family and head off around this amazing country we call home.
