My social media profile bio’s all say ‘Travel obsessed travel agent on a mission to eat and blog my way around the globe with my drone’. In a nutshell, this is the story. Let me break it down…
Maybe the word ‘globe’ is a bit much. I have no desire to see a large percentage of this planet as it happens but that’s ok because there’s more than enough of the bits I do want to see to last me a lifetime. I have a substantial bucket list and subject to earning enough money to fulfil it, I hope to make a decent effort before I’m too old for budget airlines.
I just love being abroad. I absolutely love packing a suitcase, going to the airport, getting on a plane and landing somewhere new – it’s the most exciting thing for me. My favourite trips are City breaks, Mediterranean islands, road trips and anywhere that includes castles, massive bridges, lighthouses, lakes & mountains, cable cars, penguins and amazing food (will talk more about that in a sec).
I am a Travel Agent. I need a job, not least to fund my expensive obsession with travelling and it’s the only job I can think of that allows me to live and breathe all the things I am passionate about on a daily basis, which obviously includes travel but not just that. I run my own business which gives me the flexibility to sell personally tailored holidays whilst doing an epic job at providing a level of customer service that you can’t find online and managing my own marketing which I’m also pretty obsessive about.
I love eating, what more can I say? Foreign cuisine is exciting and I love trying traditional dishes and discovering new foods the way they’re meant to be cooked rather than the way they’re interpreted in the UK so when i’m planning a trip, food goals are on the map!
I recently told someone that i’d been writing about my travel experiences for almost 30 years which I found quite amusing as i’m only 35 but it’s true… I had to write about my holiday’s as a kid and read it out to my classmates every year. I love remembering my memories and sharing my experiences to help inspire others.
In 2017 I learnt to fly a drone and developed an uncharacteristic level of excitement at any given opportunity to fly one. So I got a little DJI Spark and frankly, it’s the coolest thing I’ve ever owned. I absolutely love looking down with a camera in the sky and taking pictures from above. My top 3 drone goals are Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany, A whale off the coast in Hermanus in Cape Town, and Plitvice lakes in Croatia.
Ambitious, I know!
When i’m not working, travelling or blogging, you’ll find me in my Levi’s and Sketchers in and around the South East of England. From checking out cool restaurants with epic views in London or finding crazy street art to pose in front of, to exploring quirky coffee shops in quaint little British villages… every day is an adventure!
