Humans of Brighton – Meet Dunstan The Traveller
Hello Dunstan, nice to meet you! Can you tell me a bit about you? Yes, of course. My name is Dunstan Harris and I’m 24 years old. I was born in London but now I live in Brighton.
What do you do in you free time? Have fun mostly. I travel frequently with my girlfriend Abbie and we post our adventures online. Photography is another keen hobby, seeing friends, I also love cooking and with different flavours. One of my ambitions is to have a cafe serving fresh food and juices. In Bali or Brighton I haven’t decided yet, maybe both.
Which countries have you been to? Australia, New Zealand, China, America, India, Indonesia, Asia, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Antigua, Dominica, Egypt, Morocco, Turkey, Monaco, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Ireland, France, Italy, Spain, Croatia, Switzerland, Greece.
Favourite country? Bali
Which country have you not been to that you want to go to? The Philippines, but I also really want to go to Japan.
Tell me a funny story from one of your trips? On a recent trip with Abbie to Indonesia, people where struggling to pronounce my name ‘Dunstan’ and I’m a big James Bond fan so for the rest of the trip, and throughout Thailand the locals knew me as James. it produced many funny moments when Abbie would say Dunstan and then I would get asked who Dun San is?
What are your plans for the future? To be healthy, wealthy and wise (laugh). I am focusing on speaking to as many brands and agencies as possible to get my name out there really. To continue growing my audience on Instagram as well but im really looking forward to jumping on YouTube as I want to start vlogging to show another side of what I get up to. I/We have also been invited to festivals in the UK and in Europe this summer to promote, so I’m looking forward to them.
What do you like about your hometown Brighton? I love the energy it has, I lived in central London for many years but there is just something special about Brighton. The old parts and the new parts fit together so well and the blend of people here, of course the sea too. It is really a cool place to live.
You have already visited so many countries, can you imagine living in another place than Brighton? I think I will always have a base in Brighton. I would love to live in Hawaii. I think I might end up there.
Thank you so much for your time Dunstan. I really start dreaming by watching your photos and listening to your stories. I wish you all the best and that your dreams come true. Have a good journey wherever you will go next.
