Chats About Travel with Stuart Mcdonald Travelfish Founder - Part One

11 Jun 2020

Stuart Mcdonald set up the website Travelfish along with his Wife 16 years ago in 2004. The couple have been based in various countries in Southeast Asia since 1997 and every place mentioned on the website has been personally visited by them.

We speak with Stuart who has been riding out the Corona lock down in Bali with his family to talk about how it all began from his backpacking days to the current travel and tourism situation now.


Stuart settled in Thailand after backpacking across Southeast Asia, serving as an underpaid, under-skilled language instructor, an embassy worker and a website creator for the newspaper. He co-authored two travel guides previous to all those non-work jobs, one to Vietnam and one to Thailand.

He also travels a lot of the time still to this day, and can sleep wherever, anytime — even on the path to Bokor.

This points out he's got narcolepsy! His favorite reading is Alain de Botton 's Art of Transportation.
