Tell us about you

I am now a Canadian citizen after growing up in Ireland and living in Australia for a couple of years. I am at home on the road. The sense of freedom is addicitive. I think I need to go to meetings!!!
 

Favourite travel destination and why

Antarctica. The one commonality throughout the world is people. They are everywhere, except Antarctica. Being off the grid and in nature for two weeks was unparalleled. It was like being on another planet. 
 

How many countries have you visited?

Heading for 50 - it takes way too long to try and count them! Lots more to see though.
 

Most recent adventure

Nepal with Intrepid. We did an 8-day trip and were able to experience Hinduism, the Himalayas and we even saw a leopard in the wild. I loved it, will go back again for sure.
 

Best travel memory

Chillin' in Belize without a worry in the world. Travel is sometimes about what you are seeing and what you are doing. But sometimes it's about a total sense of escapism from our normal worlds. Belize a great place to get away from it all.
 

Favourite food experience

Butter chicken on a rooftop restaurant in the city of Madurai in Southern India. We got the last cold beers out of the fridge too. Nobody likes warm beer, especially when it's 40 degrees!
 

Any advice for people considering embarking on the trip of a lifetime

Do it, honestly do it. It's better to regret something you did do than something you didn't to. Anyway, you won't regret it.
 

Which country is next on your list to experience and why?

Iceland. I love the outdoors and I think Iceland has a lot to offer. It's also kind of en route to Ireland so it's a great excuse to stop over.
