A writer and blogger. I travel to find good food, explore new places and pet all of the dogs. I try to live sustainably and love hiking and the outdoors.
My travel style
I travel to seek out wild spaces and friendly faces. Whether it’s diving aircraft wrecks in Jordan, spotting blue whales off the coast of Sri Lanka or searching for orangutans in the deep jungle of Borneo, it usually involves animals in one way or another. I travel on a budget so I can travel further and for longer, using travel hacks and tricks of the trade to find unmissable experiences and under-the-radar places. I also know where to get the best Aperol Spritz in Venice!
