Articles by Peter Rosenfeld

Born in Sale, Cheshire I followed a non-conventional career after boarding school, through the merchant navy, into Saudi Arabia and then into my own business(es). In 2004 I found the World of media, initially in front of the camera for a number of TV documentaries and productions both as presenter and victim! In 2006, after gaining the respect of my peers along with a reputation of influencing consumer decisions through my communication skills, I began writing for a number of travel publications. In summer 2008 my written efforts were rewarded with my own dedicated slot as a travel correspondent & radio presenter for Cheshire FM entitled "The Talking Tourism" show. I have been accepted (by application, interview and due-diligence) into the British Guild Of Travel Writers (BGTW) and later that same year, the National Union Of Journalists (NUJ). I have decided to now focus on travel-related features, articles and presenting.
