Vale Mike Osborne

It is with much sadness that we bid a final farewell to our dear colleague and friend, Michael Osborne, who slipped away peacefully while in hospital following surgery.

For many years, Mike was a fixture at travel industry functions and an inveterate traveller and always generous with his time and advice.

Mike was one of the first people I met when I transitioned to fulltime travel writing around 20 years ago and will always remember his good humour and ebullient personality. We travelled together on many occasions and he was invariably an excellent travelling companion.

He leaves a legacy of voluminous travel writing and pictures through his website, Mature Traveller.

Cheers, Mike. Travel well and thanks for all the fish.
