OS Wayfarer is not a business or an enterprise but a passion!
At its core, OS Wayfarer is about self-publishing eBooks, especially our travel eBooks. So far, we have self-published eight travel eBooks.
OS Wayfarer is sustained through the partnership of Graham and Katherine Kingston. It is our passion for travel, and my (Graham’s) passion (some might say obsession) for personal computing, photography, and project management, that has resulted in OS Wayfarer. Fortunately, Katherine knows her history, provides great editing, calms Graham’s exuberance, anchors the outfit in some reality, and ensures a measure of class.
We endeavour, for less than the price of a cup of coffee, to share our travel experiences with you. We hope you enjoy our eBooks.
Four key principles underpin our approach:
• We love to take a “Do it Yourself” approach as much as is feasible: in respect of our travel, eBooks.
• A cost-effective approach is always front of mind.
• A commitment to maintaining standards is important to us.
• A desire to share our knowledge and expertise thereby helping others to enhance their travel experiences.
We strive to be professional; and to adopt practical, affordable, achievable, and effective approaches to the development and publishing of our eBooks.
We are retired baby boomers and we have been at this caper, in one form or another since about 2009.
We travelled as a part of our professional working lives but to less developed countries. We lived and worked in Bandung, Indonesia (four years), Kitwe, Zambia (four years) and Kuching, Sarawak (two years). These wonderful opportunities provided a rich experience for our family and instilled a desire to travel (perhaps it was always there).
We have travelled quite a bit since retiring and intend to continue. To date we have visited various parts of the world: for example, Athens, Prague, Isle of Skye, along the Queensland Coast, Istanbul, Bucharest, Budapest, and Barcelona (it just so happens that all these visits resulted in an eBook!).
Earlier we travelled to Spain, Portugal, and Morocco, as well as Italy on two Insight Tours.
I (Graham) started out as a Radio Technician before becoming a technical teacher, and technical teacher trainer. This foundation led to a very enjoyable career as an adviser, program/project tenderer and manager, and independent consultant in international development assistance.
Katherine commenced her career as a primary school teacher before becoming an ELICOS (English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students) teacher, Self-Access Centre manager, and IELTS (International English Language Testing Service) Centre manager.
