About this blog

In August 2011 I headed down under to try working in an emergency department near the east coast of Australia. I got lucky getting a job at Lismore hospital - the most friendly and sociable hospital I have had the privilege to work in. We based ourselves a short commute away in a little surf town called byron bay. Famous for its great surf, beautiful beaches and hippy culture. 9 months turned into 20 months and now I am finally (and sadly) preparing to leave my little byron bubble and head off on my own for 4 months backpacking across 3 continents before finally settling down to GP training in cardiff! My travels will mostly be with tour groups, a little my own and a few weeks with a friend. The plans are as follows:

8th April travelling from Alice springs to Darwin via Ayers Rock, Katherine gorge and Kakadu national park with Wayoutback. Week sailing around the islands off SW Thailand in search of a little slice of paradise with intrepid Tour from Bangkok to Hanoi through Cambodia and Vietnam with g adventures. A week in Hanoi by myself to arrange some mountain trekking near sapa Gadventure tour from Hanoi to Singapore through Laos Thailand and Malaysia. 2 weeks with a friend in Indonesia 2-3 weeks safari through tanzania and Kenya ending in zanzibar before coming home. Tour yet to be decided!

This is my blog to document the highs, the lows and all my new experiences. Whether you know me and your reading to keep updated on my whereabouts (hi mum!) or your going somewhere similar and your reading for ideas, I hope you enjoy it! I will do my best to keep it regularly updated where Internet connection allows and I'll keep those photos coming!
