Erik Jelinek

Erik was born and raised in Scotland, but also went to school in Germany and France where he picked up the languages as well as a penchant for good food and bad jokes. His career path has been rather eclectic, first as a teacher of biology and then as a management consultant, interspersed with ever-longer travels abroad. Upon returning from his last trip (4 years, 5 continents, and 53 countries) he decided to find a job where he can share his passion for travel and discovery with others. As well as having an insatiable appetite for trying every new type of food he comes across and speaking far too many languages, Erik is a trivia buff and loves to supply his passengers with a constant dose of ultimately useless, but nevertheless fascinating, factoids.
