I often get asked in interviews about the places I’m at so I thought I would start doing my own “Travel Guide” from now on for each of the places I visit on my continual Polo Tour starting with my Travel Guide to Aspen, Colorado.
One of the things I love about polo is the travelling. We get to play polo in some of the most beautiful places in the world, I myself have been lucky enough to play on all 5 continents, have seen some amazing sights and had some pretty unique experiences.
