Alan Parrish discovers the unfamiliar stories of familiar places. Alan is co-founder of New Found Tours, a provider of audio walking tours for Rome, Italy, and blogger of DestinationStory.com, where he shares stories that often escape the typical tour. Alan spent over twenty-five years looking for and discovering stories. He was not a reporter, a filmmaker, or even a storyteller – he was a police officer. Alan heard stories every day – many of which could only be told to the police. His appreciation for stories and his passion for travel gave birth to New Found Tours. Realizing there are stories in every place, Alan has always had a curiosity for the ones that go untold. Whether it's an elderly woman's experience living in occupied Rome during World War II, or the antics of a famous person at a restaurant; they all bring life to the places we visit or read about. Alan created New Found Tours and Destination Story for those who share his interest in seeing the travel sites in new ways. He is currently writing a book about the characters who have shaped the hidden stories of Rome, and he'll soon publish new stories in audio walking tours of Barcelona and Paris.
