McCool Travel Tips: 5 Minutes With Paul Johnson, ALuxuryTravelBlog.com

McCool Travel is excited to present tips from travel experts in our 5 Minutes interview series featuring travel industry giants, super frequent travelers, and adventurous persons.
For the latest profile, I am thrilled to present Paul Johnson–principle author and editor of A Luxury Travel Blog ( http://www.aluxurytravelblog.com ) and Director of a very successful online tourism marketing business ( http://www.dedicate.co.uk ).
Paul lives with his family in Kendal, UK which is between two of England’s most beautiful National Parks – the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales – and also has a vacation rental business there ( http://www.kendalcottages.com ). Despite his blog specialism, his travels haven’t always been of the luxury persuasion – he’s hostelled in many parts of Europe and camped in sub-zero temperatures in Greenland, many miles from civilization.
