About Me


To see 100 countries before I turn 30


I was brought up all over Europe. Age 20 I ventured across the Hemispheres and have pretty much lived from a bag ever since.
Along the way I picked up: a guitar; some languages; cool tricks; loads of jokes; a bit of charm; a whole lot of friends; few acquaintances; fewer lovers; and a great love and understanding for why its dark at night and light during the day (except in Hammerfest and Ushuaia).


Half the journey is in leaving your front door
