Ali founded Activities Abroad way back in 1999 after telling his last boss where to stick his job! Not surprisingly, he woke up the next day and found himself unemployed.
Undaunted, he sat down with a piece of paper and wrote down a list of what he wanted to do with his life. The first two items on the list were: Travel and Adventure Sports. That's where it all started.
His plan to travel extensively was somewhat scuppered when his wife, totally irresponsibly, became pregnant. Not once but twice! Ali now claims that his plan has gone fundamentally wrong as it is his employees rather than himself who get to do most of the travelling these days. Regardless, he has Daisy and Archie as compensation.
Nevertheless, Ali has managed to mark up an impressive range of destinations over the years.
