About Me

CURRENT MISSION

See the world and meet its people

ABOUT ME

Me and my girlfriend Helen are travelling the world on a career break having sold our house and cars and left our lives behind. Once we are done travelling on this trip we plan to head to Melbourne is Oz to work and hopefully save up a bit of cash to keep travelling for a while longer. If not we will head back to the UK and start again.

I am an accountant at home and am really into cars, football and food. I had 4 cars in two years before we came away, my favourite being a Golf mark 1 GTI convertible. I support Wigan but follow most teams in the Premiership. I love to make homemade pizza and curries and even have some spices from India in my travelling backsack!

Helen is an English teacher and has a passion for working with young people and empowerment through education on a global scale. She's an active volunteer; an EC member for a UK charity Volunteer Action for Peace and also loves cooking and red wine!

PHILOSOPHY

To learn new stuff and enjoy it!
