Introducing the “Sight of the Navigator Community”! A Brand New Forum Bringing Together Passengers and Transit Providers From All Over Europe!

11 Oct


Many of you will know that I’m passionate about travel and always keen to help people get the best out of their journey.  To support that passion today I’m launching a brand new website which aims to share and improve the experiences of travelling passengers all over Europe.

The Sight of the Navigator Community aims to “improve tomorrow’s journey experience”, a simple and bold endeavour.  To reach this target I’m looking to involve YOU, the traveller, at every step of the way, and today I’m throwing the doors open and inviting you to .  Through email, as well as via other methods on the site, you can send in your European travel experiences, promote suggestions, contribute advice and ask questions about travelling on the many and varied transit networks of Europe. Whether it’s with bus, train, ferry, tram, metro or at a station, harbour or airport terminal I look forward to hearing about your journey and the experiences that you have had.

What can we achieve?

As well as growing the community, and being a knowledge and reference base for all the different European transit networks the goal is to incubate ideas and design answers to transport issues based on the experiences of you, the traveller.  By acting as a conduit I can amplify your voice and bring transport providers and passengers closer together, promoting service orientated solutions which benefit us all.

Many friends have commented to me recently “You should offer this as a service”, or “If only you could sort out the transport in my city”.  I’m more than happy to do both! All I need is for you to help me to help you. This is your chance to take part in developing the solution!

How does it work?

1)      Simply email me your travel experiences at or

Use the comment form on (where you’ll also find out more about how the Community works) …and get in touch.

2)      Once I’ve received your message I’ll get in touch to clarify the details, add it to the database and promote the issue across my network.

3)      Other community members can add to your entry with their advice, ideas, know-how and similar experiences all of which can help our journeys in the future.

4)      Bookmark the site and write a few lines next time you have a journey to share.

5)      Spread the Word! and forward this message to any “passengers and travellers” in your network. They might be regular commuters, backpackers, businessmen or just regular shoppers!  Everyone’s experience is equally valuable!

I value your privacy and your time very highly, so whether you’re a CEO, Entrepreneur, Student or raising a family I want to make sharing your journey as easy as possible.  To aid this you’ll find on the Community site a downloadable Word document that has simple questions inside it that will help relay your experience.  Cut and paste these questions into an email message or other document and send them back or merely use them for inspiration or a trigger for your memory.

Thanks once again and I look forward to hearing about your travels!
