I’m originally from sleepy Suffolk in the UK. I’m a crazy dreamer and with an insatiable desire for travel and adventure who could never settle for an ordinary life or conform with the norm.
After graduating from uni and ‘selling my soul’ as a corporate slave I started to feel like I was wasting the best years of my life behind a desk working for someone else’s passions and dreams. There had to be more to life than this!
Still, most of the time it’s easier to carry on with the routine of the daily grind, always dreaming that ‘one day’ you will take that trip, than that take that leap and leave your comfort zone.
The turning point for me was when I was told I had a detached retina and had to have an operation on my eye. It was the jolt I needed to realise that life is far too short to put off things off, or not make the most of every day, even in your twenties you are never too young to get sick.
