Hi I'm...

Will Pawley

My job at Luckies involves...

Developing business within the UK for our core ranges and working with partners to create bespoke products, I also assist with our marketing strategy mainly building the Scratch Map brand.

My favourite Scratch Map is...

Oceans Edition – Being a Chelsea fan Blue is the colour! Also, I love the ocean, having lived on an Island for the majority of my life so the Oceans Map has always stood out to me.

My most embarrassing/funniest travel story is...

A family holiday to Spain, we were having dinner and a magician was performing on stage. He invited my step-dad up onto the stage to assist in his trick. My step-dad was asked to sit on a chair and put a hat on. The magician then proceeded to set fire to the hat with my step-dad unmoved by the fire on top of his head everyone thought the trick was done. He removed the hat and stood up to applause, making his way off the stage there was a silence and whispering until a shout of ‘OH MY GOD, HE’S BURNT OFF HIS HAIR!’ everyone gasped and my step dad panicked because of the sudden outburst. No one had noticed he was already balding and so the whole crowd and magician included thought the trick had gone wrong. To be fair to my step dad he played a long with it and managed to get dinner free as they thought they’d burnt his hair off! He spent the rest of the night with everyone making sure he was okay and the odd laugh at his bald spot.

My favourite travel photo I’ve taken is...

My favourite has got to be from Cyprus. Walking a long the coast at sunset and coming across a Shipwreck that was 50m from the coast line.

My best travel hack/accessory is...

Apart from my toothbrush as an absolute essential, the best travel hack would have to be rolling my clothes when packing, especially jeans and shorts, to save room in my suitcase

The next item off my travel bucket list will be...

Portugal, for a Golf tour. Never been to Portugal and never had a golf holiday so very excited!

The best place I've ever been to is...

Rome. History, culture and pizza!

My dream travel destination is...

I’ve always wanted to go to Thailand and do some Island-hopping, but Rio De Janeiro, Brazil is top of the list. Christ the redeemer and the Maracanã stadium.
