The other worldly landscapes of Tenerife made Jack Montgomery of Buzz Trips realise what was really important in life...

In 2003 Jack swapped writing government reports about skill shortages and socially disadvantaged sections of society from an office overlooking Old Trafford for writing about other worldly landscapes and men in fishnet stockings and stilettos at carnivals from a banana plantation in the Canary Islands.

Over the last decade Jack has jumped from a plane (not his idea), finger sword fenced a cuttlefish beneath the waves, explored historic cities on a Segway and partied till dawn at a number of bizarre fiestas.

When it comes to gastronomy, Jack happily wolfs down every local speciality put in front of him; from rabbits and ponies to snails and sheeps' trotters. He's at his happiest pulling on the walking boots and heading into the hills to explore some of the most beautiful countrysides in Europe.

His experiences have been documented on the websites he runs with travel writer wife Andy (Buzz Trips, The Real Tenerife) as well as in guidebooks and travel articles/photographs for The Huffington Post, Monarch, Cosmos, Thomas Cook, Sunshine.co.uk, Spain-Holiday.com and, of course, Inntravel.
