Schedule
for Damon Ramsey

I try to keep this as updated as possible. For just completed trips and work history go to work history of Damon Ramsey

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING

Unfortunately, much of this schedule may no longer apply
Due to the virus, this schedule has been changed almost weekly.
There has been many bookings and cancellations and re-bookings.
Many companies have had to make multiple changes in their future itineraries.
I am also juggling up to five different company schedules.
This has resulted in many contradictory bookings that I am trying to sort out.

Please be aware, that it looks like that for the next few seasons, I will have to concentrate on companies offering Asia/Australia contracts to minimise cancellations.

Examples: 
Work; including my role, dates, locations, ship, company
Cancellations & changes

Private expeditions, time off
Courses & training & other random stuff

2021

Updates
Well it looks like my first trip after the virus now might be as an Expedition leader in Tasmania with Coral Expeditions. If you can't go travelling until everything settles down, then until then, here I am doing online guided walks for Noble Caledonia and online lectures for Silversea.
