The Travel Hub




The Travel Hub can be described in a quote from Ibn Battuta. 

"Travel, it leaves you speechless then turns you into a story-teller".

It so perfectly captures the experience of travel and then sharing it with family, friends or your travel community. It was this desire to create a social community of travellers that saw the origin of The Travel Hub. It started with a conversation on a train between Venice and Milan. How to create a platform for people to share experiences. How to connect like-minded travellers. How to inspire and be inspired.  


The Travel Hub Team


Andy Marty : Co-Founder

Andy's background has a degree in Veterinary Science, which ties with his strong love of the outdoors, wildlife and the natural world. Andy spent a lot of time exploring his home - Australia, before a move to the Middle East opened doors to the rest of the world and fuelled a desire to travel far and wide. Passionate about photography, wildlife and landscapes, Andy doesn't need an excuse to put his camera in the bag and jump on a plane.
