I was really hoping I would get away with the obligatory ‘about me’, especially the whole photo part but I’ve been told that’s not the correct way to do things so here goes!
I have a love of coral reefs, nature and wildlife, stark landscapes and white beaches, throw in the occasional piece of history and/or architecture and you will be close to a 100% match on my travel style
I don’t class myself as an ‘expert’ on one particular area of the globe, nor do I class myself an expert on any type of travel – I love variety too much to make repeat trips to one country or area. You will find much, much more about my travels on the pages of this website but here is a brief rundown of my travels in my adult life:

Unfortunately, I don’t work in travel. I am always being told that I should due to my experiences and the level of knowledge I’ve accumulated during years of trip planning and research so maybe it will happen one day! For the mean time I work in the finance department of a large mental health care provider and passed my final ACCA exam in December 2012 (yay).
I am very happily married to a man who not only puts up with my blabberings of all things exotic and travel related but also cooks me the most amazing food! It is thanks to him that I have a much wider pallette now, and really enjoy Indian and Thai food. I always wanted to be a Marine Biologist when I was younger, which probably explains my deep love of all things fish and reef. After having that passion reignited in 2009 I joined a trip to Dahab, Egypt to learn to dive in 2010. Diving didn’t, and doesn’t, come naturally to me if I am honest. I had to overcome a lot of anxiety to eventually get my Scuba Diver cert that year. I then managed to upgrade to Open Water diver in the Maldives in 2011 before again upgrading to Advanced Open Water in 2013.
