About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Have fun, see the world, learn, live and make a positive difference (climate change!)

ABOUT ME

Hi I'm Meadhbh (pronounced Mayve, yes it's a crazy Irish spelling!)

Lived in Dublin my whole life. Been living in Australia for the past 2 years, both working (engineer and climate campaigning)and travelling.

Now I'm embarking on an overland trip back to Ireland passing through more than 15 countries! It was really my passion for climate change that motivated me to not fly home (and reading an article by Kevin Anderson on the topic). It's all about slow travel, seeing different cultures, learning about myself and the world, and having fun!

PHILOSOPHY

Always be truthful (karma is for real!) and mindful, live on the edge, stress and worry are not worth the hassle

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hmmmmm one thing is......being born!!

Perhaps also the time when I decided to cycle on my own to a cave on a random little island off Panama. There was one old lady and her dog - no English. I went into the cave with a torch that broke almost straight away, attempted to wade through in waist high water, complete darkness, large spiders, bats all around me...never been so scared, but also exhilarated!

Teach, Learn, Share

Climate change is the number 1 problem in the world and it affects everything from extreme weather events, poverty, food and water shortages, health....we need to all work harder to lessen the impacts ASAP before we all are dooooooomed!!!!!

On a more positive note BE HAPPY and don't allow space for negative thoughts in your head then you will attract happiness and good people!
