Originally from a small town in the UK, I have been travelling since 2007.
I have lived in Sydney, Gold Coast and Perth in Australia, Auckland, Wellington & Mount Maunganui in New Zealand and Chiang Mai & Bangkok in Thailand and travelled many more countries.

I have spent a lot of time living in and travelling in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Thailand.

I love to create in-depth Travel Guides and 'travel savvy' blog posts to show people how you really can travel on a budget, or how to travel for much longer than you think, just by having an open mind and changing up the way you travel.
I also love helping others create a long-term nomadic lifestyle.

I blog candidly about long-term travel and show you ways to live a happy & rewarding travel life and also take care of yourself - when you travel short/long-term or just if you live nomadically.

As well as travel, I'm passionate about Personal/Self Development, Mental Health & Wellness, being unconventional and living to your own passions and values.
I believe even if that means you're permanently nomadic, living unconventionally and designing your own lifestyle - we're all different, so we don't always need to do what society deems 'normal'.

I'm also keenly interested in Sustainable Travel, combating Over-Tourism, Van Life living, Tiny House Living and Sustainable/Green Design and Architecture.
