Gainesville man a true globetrotter
Cruise ship employee has been traveling the globe for 30 years
With only four hours in this port-of-call, Scott Kinney, seated on the left, took a few photos of the port itself, including local Dutch people who dressed in traditional costume.
Before he saw Queen Elizabeth, before he privately toured the King Tutankhamun tomb, before he took five around-the-world trips and before he visited more than 100 of our world’s great nations, Scott Kinney was just a Georgia boy who had never been outside the immediate South. Now, 30 years later, the 63-year-old Gainesville native and current Talmo County resident has a long history of sharing his love of globetrotting with thousands of would-be adventurers. For the past three decades, Kinney worked on cruise ships as a shore excursions director, which allowed him to guide passengers on his ships to faraway and exotic locales, such as the Great Pyramids, Stonehenge, the Sydney Opera House and much more.
