About Me


To appreciate my feet more. They do a wonderful job.


In love with being alive, I am a happy, go-lucky redhead with an adventurous spirit. I love theatre, the great outdoors, hysterical laughter and random bursts of song.

I am a vegetarian (but not an angry one) and am currently experiencing the joys of experimental cooking as I learn to expand my culinary repertoire.

Rarely unhappy I think that there is usually a funny side, or at least a silver lining, and I believe in seeing the best in life.

I am passionate about travel. I thrive on trying new things, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures.

I am constantly in search of new ways of thinking, understanding different perspectives and learning from others.

I have a genuine interest in people, and love exchanging stories, beliefs, traditions and values.

The best lessons I have learnt so far in my life have come from the simple act of having an open mind and talking to people.

'Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, worry and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand eachother, we may even become friends'. Thankyou Maya Angelou.


An open heart. An open mind. A willingness to listen. An absence of judgement. A spirit of adventure and exploration.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spending two weeks living with an indigenous tribe deep in the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest.

I have also assisted in both the birth and castration of a llama. Two different llamas, might I add. Slightly disturbing experiences yes, but amazing all the same.

Teach, Learn, Share

My greatest love is the very fine art of random and spontaneous adventure. Something I definitely enjoy sharing with others.
