Travelling the world

I’ve been very fortunate to have travelled to over 40 countries. Most of those countries clocked up pre and post-university while on ‘gap year’ travelling stints.Travelling plays a big part of my life as I am nomadic. In between expeditions, I look for cheap places to travel where I can catch up with work. While there I go on the hunt for fun mini-adventures and new experiences.

My lifestyle is only possible because I keep costs low. So I always travel on a budget – with a splash of luxury thrown in from time to time.

Goodbye Africa. Hello home

Where have the last 2 months gone?! I can't quite believe it has been 8 weeks since I sat around the table eating a Christmas Day feast with the family. But then again, I say the same every year. Time moves fast. January and February last year were miserable. I was...

Volunteering and my biggest travel regret

From the age of 14, I started working as much as I could putting every penny I could into savings. By the time I left school, I had enough to make my dream of volunteering in Africa a reality. I boarded a plane in 2006, on my own, for a 6month adventure in East and...
