About Me


To live a happy life.


I'd probably describe myself as fairly reserved but getting braver about trying new things as I get older, caring less about what people think and more about living life to the fullest.

Ok, wrote the above almost 2 years ago and it's still pretty accurate. Just taken the big, brave (some might say foolish!) step of quitting my job to follow my travel dreams.


Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Volunteering in Cambodia in 2010 was awesome. Loved the place and the people, both locals and other volunteers/travellers I met. Angkor temples truly stunning.

Teach, Learn, Share

Plan for 2012 was pretty much to have no plan, but I know that will probably change. Going to US for 1st time in June which I'm really excited about and will be in UK mid July and August catching up with family.
