About me

I’m a twenty-something Brit with two main desires in life: to travel and photograph. I’m very happy when doing just one, but I’m in heaven when doing them together. I also have a penchant for crazy adventures, heights, islands, hikes and snorkelling – all of which my poor camera(s) have to endure, and all of which you’ll find here on my blog.

I had my first taste of travelling solo at 18, when I signed up for volunteer work in Canada. It was both terrifying and awesome. Since then I’ve been to over 20 countries, often by myself and always on a budget, always photographing along the way.

But for me it’s not about going to countless countries to tick them off a list. It’s about getting stuck in and getting the best out of each and every one. It’s about going on and off the beaten track and then some. I love to explore weird and wonderful places, or the places that guidebooks seem to overlook.

Now travel isn’t something I do 4 weeks of the year, it’s become my lifestyle and I love it. Last Christmas I quit my 9-5 job to lead a more nomadic life; since then I’ve flown across the world and divided my time between New Zealand, Australia and Hawaii. Now there are big European adventures on the horizon and a return to New Zealand. Travel has a sneaky way of pushing your limits and boundaries to the point where you look back and can’t believe the places you’ve been or the things you’ve done. It’s the best feeling!
