About Me


to wake up


Free thinking, independent, lovin and livin life, I love to take risks, face fears, push boundries.
I gave up my life in the UK to travel and be of service to others, to live a life with some meaning and purpose, not waste my time living a life that belongs to someone else!

Having spent a year and a half living in Argentina, I developed a passion for long distance cycle touring, aka, living like a hobo on a bike! Also camping, hiking, swimming in the sea.
Last year saw me cycling 2500 kms around Spain, and many more trips planned.
I was going to cycle around the world this year but fate had other plans. I met a beautiful Spanish girl and now we live together and have a cat!
So, I continue to read books by Alastair Humphreys, and plan to cycle to Istanbul some time next spring, and maybe my girlfriend and the cat can come too!!!


open my mind, see what is real!
