Published by Xlibris

With wartime schooling in New Zealand, postwar schooling in Wales, and later University in England’s smog-bound Manchester, Travis had already travelled 14,000 miles by his 14th birthday! From studying a new and experimental 5 year Hons. Degree course in Town & Country Planning, his career was to lead on to developing ‘Planning for Tourism’ as an even newer professional field.

After a town planning career, climaxing in his first Planning Chair in Edinburgh, and then a later Urban Studies Research Chair in Birmingham, plus a Visiting Chair in Tourism –in Glasgow, he made a worldwide contribution. From Consulting for the European Union, the UN World Tourism Organisation, and the Pacific Area Travel Association – in places as varied as Poland, the Maldives, Michigan, and the Algerian Sahara, Travis has also lectured overseas regularly.

In over 50 years of work, the stability has been given by his wife and family, aided by a global village of friends. A rich life that he can muse about in his 80’s!
