About LinWin Adventures

After thirty-two years of working in the finance industry;  Lionel has decided to embark on a sabbatical. This was not an easy decision as he has never been off for more than two weeks at any given time and he loves his job and the people he works with on a daily basis.

With some subtle pressure from his wife Winsome, who has tolerated  his long work hours for many, many  years, he has decided the time was perfect to take some time off to relax and travel.  Their plan is to spend the first seven weeks relaxing in Grand Cayman and then travel to a number of destinations:  These include:

  • Havana, Cuba
  • Africa (Solo Trip)
  • Hawaii (Our Honeymoon, 23 years late)
  • Jamaica ?
  • Greece, Mediterranean Cruise, Italy
  • Other ???
Lionel is fortunate to work for a very progressive firm and has an exceptional boss who has been very accommodating about his plans to recharge and travel.  He works with an incredible team who are more than capable of keeping the machine firing on all cylinders in his absence and continue to grow the business.
Lionel & Winsome are new to blogging so please be patient as they learn on the fly.
Stay tuned!

    Lionel & Winsome,

    The blog is great! So good in fact I think Andrew & I need to start planning a sabbatical so we can come hang out with you. The pictures are fantastic and remind us of our time in Grand Cayman 12 years ago. They also remind us that it has been 12 long years since we visited your beautiful island and we are way overdue for another visit.

    Keep the posts coming! Looking forward to hearing about many more great adventures over the coming months.

    All the best,
    Erin Ackles

      Thanks Erin. For better or worse there was been a ton of development since you were last here, but the Island is still beautiful.

    What a novel idea to start a blog LinWin! A great way to keep your friends and family updated on your travels and adventures. It’s also a great way to make everyone reading this (including me) green with envy 🙂

    Think taking a sabbatical is a marvelous idea. It is sure to be a major adjustment but before you know it you will have forgotten what it was like to handle an intense daily work schedule.

    Enjoy your travels and keep us posted.

    Great idea,Win & Lionel…& the pictures are FABULOUS…which is not surprizing having seen prior efforts….LOVE the B&W ones too! Only disappointment is that Jamaica has a question mark beside it :(! Hope THAT will be erased (the question mark,that is) soon,as we so look forward to having you here in Jamaica again….great adventures await & old haunts to revisit, like Stamma’s pub at Flamstead for a stony gravel!! Plenty love, Philip & Jeanne

    Hi Lionel! I’m just amazed at your photos you truely have a talent. How did you tame that Cheetah? Looks like you are embracing every moment – I am so thrilled for you. Looking forward to seeing more and living vicariously through your adventures.

      Great to hear from you Josie and I hope all is good with you. I miss our sessions!
      I wish I had the talent to train the beautiful Sheba. She was brought to the camp at around 1 month old and become comfortable with people. She has taught herselt to hunt and will leave camp for days at a time before returning. She already has a number of kills to her name. There are more picture of her in the photo gallery if you have not already seen them – Lewa Cats.

    Hi Lionel,
    I heard you had taken a long overdue vacation, but until I checked this site, it was hard to believe! What gorgeous pictures and what a great idea to share your travels with the rest of us. I look forward to seeing more.

      Thanks Jennifer. Have been having a great time. Presently in Jamaica where we have been for ten days. We return home tomorrow for two weeks and then head to Europe. Hope all is good with you.

    Hi Lin & Win:
    Spent the better part of my Saturday morning perusing most of the albums here and it was as though I too was making a trip to all those wonderful locations. Especially enjoyed seeing the village photos of tribesmen and women in Kenya, their abodes, children and life stock. Another world!
    Very cute photo of you Winsome sitting on the curb in Havana beside the flower lady with beads. Will be checking out the other albums I’ve not had time to view.
    Great shots! Good job!
