Back in 2007 I left the UK on what I thought would be a round the world trip for a year. Three and half years later I returned back from my travels, which took me across 5 continents. I started at Travel Nation in 2013, after going off once more for 10 months throughout South East Asia. I have always had a passion for the great outdoors, constantly looking for my next adventure, from trekking the Inca trail in Peru to an unknown mountain or volcano summit in Indonesia. Now I'm based in Worthing, I enjoy talking about past adventures and possible new ones!

Great Company to work with
Mark puts up with a lot from me - I make proposals re trips, change them a thousand times and then make a decision, which can take several months (although I do always come good in the end!). The service that Travel Nation give is superb.

Looking after my new-born little girl.
I would have to say Indonesia. Firstly the people are so welcoming, always interested in having a chat. The chance to get off the beaten track and explore the rural parts is so easy, and a must! The opportunity for culture, fantastic beaches, wildlife and adventure all on your doorstep.
Lonely Planet, sleeping bag, camera, sun cream and a sense of adventure.

I spent a year working and travelling around Australia and about 10 months in New Zealand. When I first arrived in Australia I was working 2 hours inland from Perth on a farm, hay carting. From there I moved up to Broome where I worked on the pearling fishing boats. I worked a couple of days in Darwin setting up and pulling down the stage for an Elton John concert, as well as various seasonal work in South Australia. In New Zealand I worked mainly within the vineyards of the Marlborough region, but did also try my hand at mussel opening in Whitianga, on the north island.
