My friends describe me as
never home?
The most amazing moment in my life so far
Sleeping under the stars in various deserts across Africa. Or rescuing a sloth from a road in Brazil.
So, the other day I calculated that I've spent nearly half of my adult life travelling. Thankfully, I got a job which paid me to do it, and well-meaning relatives weren't so inclined to suggest I get a "normal life", whatever the heck that is.

I like plotting future trips. It's nice to dream. Therefore, trips marked with * are ones that I would love to do but actually might not happen.
