In 2007, I left the UK for what I thought would be a year-long round the world trip. Three and half years later, I returned from my travels, which took me across five continents. After another 10-month trip through South East Asia, I joined Travel Nation in 2013. I've always had a passion for the great outdoors and I'm continually 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 possibly new ones!

Looking after my 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.

I spent a year working and travelling around Australia and about ten months in New Zealand. When I first arrived in Australia, I was working two 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.
