About Me

I’m Paul from sunny South Africa going about my journey through life, living & learning everyday. Trying to leave people better than I found them.

So where do I start 😂 I lived in the US of A in 3 month rotations for 5 years at a summer camp where I learnt a lot about myself and people. I then lived in Australia for 2 months working on a cruise ship which was dope..! Got to see awesome islands. I got fired lol.

Went back to South Africa got a job then few months later got a cooler job where I lived in the Bahamas 🇧🇸 working as a chef on a dive charter boat picturesque sunsets and crystal clear waters like I’ve never seen before 🤩 love that job because I could cook delicious food and listen to fun stories of travels out enjoying their hobbies all while pretending to be a pirates. Then I got fired again 😅

Left Bahamas went back US of A found another job went back to the Bahamas for a little visa vacation and got stuck in the Bahamas, got a job working a hostel loved that job became a tour guide of the island, then had to evade immigration so left that hostel moved to another one and did the same work there but this time I was the manager 😀. Did that for 2 months left to go back home, via Jamica got detained there sent back to Bahamas and got arrested there. Spent 2 weeks in the detention center and sent back to South Africa.

I now live in the UAE after being fired 2 more times but I now have my dream job so fingers crossed 😂😂
