Thanks for stopping by and reading about some of my adventures in 50+ countries, from the deserts of Arabia to the jungles of Thailand.
The Travel Dream
All I ever wanted to do as a child was travel and move to somewhere sunny and warm to live.
I’m from Scotland originally – hence the desire for sun and heat! – but spent most of all of my adult life in London, England before moving to Dubai a few years ago. What joy it was to finally escape the British weather and live in the sun, close to the calm blue sea, with the desert visible from my window!
I now live in the beautiful old city of Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand.
My favourite things
I’m a news junkie and follow current affairs. I love listening to people’s stories and reading books about exploring and adventures, particularly mountaineering. I’m a qualified clinical hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner (it’s a lot more intriguing that it sounds!).
I love being active, I’m a keen Crossfitter and adore the great outdoors, particularly hiking, cycling and kayaking.
As for favourite places: my home country, Scotland (of course!), for its stunning, rugged beauty and warm, funny people (shame about the weather); for wonderful, hospitable people it has to be Iran, hands down, no competition; for food it’s India; for a great mix of outdoors activities, great scenery and rich history then Oman; for beauty, Rwanda, Sri Lanka and Namibia; my favourite cities are Dubai, London and New York.
