Past President Australian Society of Travel Writers
Vincent Ross has been a journalist for more than 30 years, working in newspapers and public relations, and over the past ten years as a freelance travel writer and photojournalist.
He is married to beautiful Lee-Anne, has three sons aged 20, 17 and 14 and lives in Adelaide, South Australia – known commonly as the driest state on the driest continent, Australia. Which isn’t quite true, because Antarctica is, in fact, the driest continent on Earth, having far less rainfall than any other land mass.
People and places visited, written about and photographed over the past 30 years cover countries including Turkey, Thailand, Laos, Borneo, Bali, Sri Lanka, Israel, Greece, Britain, Scotland, France, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Singapore, Malaysia, North Korea, South Korea, Tahiti, Fiji, Samoa, India, New Caledonia, Vietnam, New Zealand, Macau, the Philippines, Argentina, Australia, the Falkland Islands and Antarctica.
Vin is fascinated by the unusual, so it’s little wonder that his camera lens and mind is now focused on unusual and unique hotels of the world.
He is past President of the Australian Society of Travel Writers and in 2004, won the Best Travel Feature Award, presented by the Korea National Tourism Organisation, for his feature article on a stay in a South Korean Buddhist temple.
