“So, I packed my bags once again and found myself trekking around Italy (alone) using their fantastic rail network. Before you know it, my love of travel, discovery and new experiences was rekindled. From there, the rest they say, is travel history with a goal to visit 3 new places abroad every year.”

You could say my nomadic life began when my Dad was posted to the Army before I was born. His work took him far afield and my family followed him where possible; resulting in my brother being born in Ireland, my sister and I in Germany.

But when we decided to settle in the UK in 1992, my nomadic life did not stop. We found ourselves in so many different homes and towns in the UK that I became accustomed to packing my bags and moving away. As far back as I can remember, I would sell or donate large quantities of my possessions every summer (just in case I found myself packing my bags again).

After graduating from the University of Plymouth, I found myself seeking work in Bristol as my Mum was now based in Gloucester – as all Graduates know, we need to stay close to home until we can save up enough money for a place for ourselves.

3 months of work later and I find myself once again packing my bags for the hipster city of Bristol; this time to rent my own apartment.

Anyone with even a remotely nomadic lifestyle will understand when I say that my feet, hands, arms and legs all became rather twitchy again. This settled life in Bristol was not familiar to me.

So, I packed my bags once again and found myself trekking around Italy (alone) using their fantastic rail network. Before you know it, my love of travel, discovery and new experiences was rekindled. From there, the rest they say, is travel history with a goal to visit 3 new places abroad every year.

So, which countries have I explored in my years of travelling?

Austria
Cyprus
England
Finland
France
Germany
Hawaii
Iceland
Ireland
Italy
Madeira
Morocco
Scotland
The Netherlands
USA
Wales

These are my memoirs, my travel tips, my experiences shared with you all – I hope you will join me in rekindling your love for travel, discovery and new experiences.
