Tell us about you
I have a passion to travel, see new places and experience what they have to offer. I left my home in the UK over 5 years ago and am yet to return after visiting USA, South America, Pacific Islands, Australia, New Zealand and 7 months in Asia.
Favourite travel destination
Thailand, for the amazing food, culture, temples, beaches, diving and weather.
Most recent adventure
Philippines - Intrepid's Philippines Discovery Trip
Best travel memory
Experiencing the wonders of East Africa and immersing myself in the culture while assisting the local community. I spent 5 weeks volunteering in Kenyan teaching projects located deep in the Rift Valley, near both Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha - spectacular panoramas and breathtaking scenery.
Best travel tips
Always take a packet of wet wipes with you, they are so handy. Also take a sarong - it can double as a beach towel, bag, sling and head scarf.
Favourite food experience
Munching on street food throughout South East Asia
Which country is next on your list to experience and why
Peru - to trek the mighty Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, learn about the Inca culture and float on the world's highest navigable lake.
