My story so far....
2005: Left the UK and headed to New Zealand, spending a great year working in Wellington and travelling the country - vineyards, trekking , kayaking and more.
2006:When my working holiday visa expired I booked a ticket to Singapore and had an amazing 6 months in Asia - Orangutans in the Borneo rainforests, Tibetan plateaus and the ancient temples of Bagan and Angkor.
2006/07: Out of money but not quite ready to return to the UK I moved to Australia for 9 months or so, living in Sydney, travelling the East Coast and realising my career was never going to be a surfer.
2007: After over 2 and a half years away I headed back to the UK... stopping in Africa on the way home where I spent a great few months in Mozambique, Swaziland and South Africa - I went on my first safari and couldn't get enough! How can you ever tire of seeing a Giraffe?!?!
2008/2009: After a year back in the UK I was off again for 15 months - first Africa, then India and finally South America from the far south of Patagonia up to Columbia
2014: Talking advantage of being 'in between jobs' I headed out to Nepal for a couple of months - trekking the Annapurna and in the Kumbhu regions of the Himalayas, along with palaces, temples and safari.
2015/2018: Work, flat and life all got in the way of any big travels but I did in the process discover ekk, group tours! Trips to Jordan, Morocco and various European cities.
2019: Russia..... finally after over 10 years I'm on the journey I wanted to do when I first left the UK to travel.
