Getting Leighton Travels off the ground has been a long and challenging but thankfully rewarding process. I really couldn’t have done it had it not been for a select group of truly amazing people. So I’d like to take this opportunity to recognize the folk that deserve to be mentioned.
Thank you to my father Dave, mother Beverley, sister Natalie, brother Cory and ex-wife Silvie, who’ve always been incredibly supportive of my writing. The same could be said of the unbelievably encouraging Emma Dawson and the late Caroline Henderson.
Thanks to Sarah Ozanne, the most inspirational teacher I’ve ever had. You gave me so much encouragement and confidence.
Cheers to Jessie Wang, who first coined the term Leighton Literature, the name of my original blog.
A tip of the hat to Anthony Ragucci, who custom designed the Leighton Literature logo. And to the incredibly talented Tushant Khanna, who brought to life the logo for Leighton Travels. While I’m at it, I’ve got to include Jitendra Patil, who oversaw Leighton Travels’ 2019 makeover.
Muchas Gracias to Daryl Wonderboy, Mary Phillips, Pierre Vinck, Lily Wang, Liu Yu, Julie Ligon, Kyle Gorman and countless others for their unwavering readership.
Ta to David Duggan, who diligently served as my special counsel, posting schedule adviser and all round number cruncher (2018-2019).
And how can I not mention my beautiful Sladana, the most dedicated and eagle-eyed Leighton Travels reader of all. If there’s a typo, broken link, wonky photo or formatting gremlin, this girl will find it!
