LUCKY TOM DALEY MEETS ROB FROM TRAVEL PLACES

Our favourite celeb spot of The Games? Definitely the wonderful Tom Daley. Tom was thrilled to meet Rob from Travel Places, or so we were told by Rob.

The diver was kind enough to stop for a quick selfie, and although it didn’t all go to plan for Tom on the Gold Coast, he and Dan Goodfellow didn’t disappoint in the synchronised 10m platform and are coming home with gold!

 

 

 

CELEBRATING THE FIRST DAY OF SPORT

After an incredible Opening Ceremony and a fantastic first day of sport, we’re enjoying a sunny game of Lawn Bowls with one of our groups of supporters!

As well as celebrating Team England’s first medal victory, Jess Learmonth collecting silver in the Women’s Triathlon, it’s safe to say that The Games have well and truly kicked off well!

TRAVEL PLACES STAFF TURN TO PEDAL POWER FOR THE COMMONWEALTH GAMES

“In the spirit of the games and Travel Places’ new wellbeing policy, Rob and I decided to ditch the car and hire bikes to get around the Gold Coast. Whilst the bikes are probably not the quality suitable for the Brownlee brothers or Sophie Thornhill, they have been trusty steeds to get us to hotel showrounds, supplier meetings and for the grocery shopping! It has been a lot of fun riding around on the bikes seeing the final preparations for The Games, visiting the venues and generally getting our bearings ready for all the questions our incoming guests are bound to have. However, with rented bikes weighing the same as your average small car and some pretty strong headwinds it has not been without its challenges, we are both expecting thighs to rival Sir Chris Hoy by the time we return to the UK!!”
