Hello Fellow Adventurers!
You know when you have to give an awkward introduction speech at work or on a course? Well that’s me writing this page! So here goes…
I am originally from Perth, Western Australia. I grew up all over the state from small towns, farms to the city. I spent a lot of time exploring my state with my parents and countless road trips. Eventually my parents split and my dad moved overseas but with that came awesome overseas travel!
In 2005 my dad took me on my first overseas trip to Egypt and I was hooked with the travel bug (technically it was my second but the age of 1 of doesn’t count). Ever since then I had been hooked to explore the world.
Forward to 2013 and I made the big decision to move overseas after a few failed attempts. I decided upon the UK as I could get a UK Ancestry Visa and helped that I could expand my career. Germany was my second option if the UK didn’t work out.
There were ups and downs preparing for my big move, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing which is so strange as I am such a planner. I mean after all I chose a career in Project Management which is just planning.
On the 22nd of August I boarded a one way plane to Athens where I embarked on a 3 month backpacking trip before I landed in the UK.
Once I landed in the UK the excitement died down and I had to find a job, a place to live, make friends and learn about all those things I didn’t plan for. To make matters worse all my accounts got scammed and I was bankrupt! Well not officially in the banks eyes but I was in some serious negative amounts. This totally pushed me back from getting a house and living off the very limited pay I had at the time.
I tried a couple of times to put my blog live until I finally did it in 2017. Now you get to learn all my lessons so you don’t have to make the same mistake I did before moving to the UK plus a bit of travel mixed in there to keep it exciting.
