About Me!
On top of Preikestolen!

I live in the U.K, work full time and earn a pretty average wage, but I have a burning desire to travel, see new places, have adventures, and experience new cultures…this is My Travel Mission! I’m constantly looking for opportunities to travel within my schedule and budget and have found some good…and not so good ways of going about this that I want to share with you. I want to prove that barriers to travel can be broken down, including price… and hope to encourage people to take the plunge and get out into the big wide world and explore!



I love everything about travel…the planning, the journey, that first step, exploring, stumbling across the unexpected…the food, a particular favourite of mine! I’ve been to many places in America and across Europe and have family and friends living in many different countries. Coming up I’ve got trips planned to Canada, the USA, and Iceland and will keep you posted on how they go.

Imagine the scenes, the screaming crowds baying for blood, incredible!

I enjoy anything new and most types of travel… Check out my posts on city breaks such as RomeVeniceFlorence, and Seville.

Adventure travel in Norway and Romania, and trying Scuba diving for the first time!

Exploring off the beaten track in Cyprus where I’ve been travelling to for 10 years, exploring the Troodos Mountains there as well…along with much much more…

One of my favourite places I’ve travelled to recently is Malta and the islands of Gozo and Comino. This place really has everything, I was amazed…outstanding natural beauty…culture…legendary history…it has it all, a really incredible place!

Plus lets not forget the U.K eh? I’m a massive fan of exploring everything on your door step, there are so many places I still want to see right here! I love Snowdonia in Wales, one of my favourite places to go and get away and leave all my troubles behind. I recently completed the three peaks challenge raising money for the Downs Syndrome Association…and check out the story of us recently taking on the Watkin Path…the hardest route to the summit of Mount Snowdon!
