Surfing is one of those things that you KNOW, if you could JUST master it, would automatically make you cool. Just as cool as speaking 10 languages and somewhere on the path to rock-star status.

Not many people could say that in one year they saw in the New Year watching fireworks in Bali, celebrated Australia Day in Singapore, filmed a road trip around South Australia, swam with sea lions in the wild, experienced a stomach-churning ride in a tiger moth, sandboarded down a sand dune, went up in a [...]

I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and work remotely. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and travel the world.
