I have been lucky enough to travel twice in my life, the first time to Thailand when I was 19 and the second time in 2009 to Thailand and Australia. I’ve come back to the UK twice now and never been happy to do the settling down thing here. I think there is a big wide world out there that needs to be seen. I have no ties here – no house, kids, live with the folks so it makes sense to do it now! I still have no clue what it is that I want to do with my life but someone rightl... full info
