About Me


To get a life... while I still can!


I'm Richard and I'm 46. After 20+ years of doing sensible grown up stuff while raising my son, I'm now finally claiming my life back. I'm tired of working just to pay the bills and going round in circles, with nothing to show for it but more lines on my face! I enjoy my job looking after disabled people, but now I want to start looking after myself. I plan to pack up, take off, see the world, see what happens. I'm in the process of doing some TEFL training and hope to work here and there teaching English abroad. One life and all that!

Off the top of my head, flying over Angel Falls in Venezuela, in a decrepit old plane was pretty awesome, although I guess to do it properly I should have trekked there through the jungle on foot. Maybe one day, eh?
