About Me


To visit all the continents


I like exploring and seeing new sights while meeting new people.


I love travelling and meeting new people. My adventure has begun in Indonesia - I'm here for one year and only have 4 months left! It's gone so fast! But with my time left I would love to meet new people to go exploring with.

I like to dance (albeit badly), and sing (same for that one) and most of all I love talking.

I like reading and writing, I'm meant to be keeping a blog in this journey...but so far I haven't had much time, I'm hoping to make time soon for that.

In England I am a keep runner, but I'm finding it difficult to keep this up in Indonesia due to the heat (and me being bad at early mornings!). So my house mate and I are trying to motivate ourselves to do exercise dvds every morning - trying being the operative word...but we're getting there :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Orangutans in Bukit Lawang - nothing can possibly beat hiking in the Sumatran jungle for a day and a night in order to see these magnificent creatures up close in their own habitat. Awe inspiring.

Borobudur - the largest Hindu temple in the world took my breath away. The view of Mt Merapi on a clear day just remind you of the immense power of nature.
