Growing up I knew that was all I wanted to do was travel.

Over the past 10 years I have been working and travelling my way around the world. I love slow travel and prefer being based in one place for an extended period of time.

For 7 years I worked in ski resorts, popping between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. I did pretty much every resort job there is but I mostly worked as a ski instructor and LOVED it!

During this time I got a degree. I worked full-time for a year as a paramedic and decided that I would go travelling for a couple of years. Fast-forward on to 5 years later and I am still on the road. I didn’t have a whole lot of savings under my belt so I worked as I travelled. I spent two amazing years working and travelling on superyachts.

Next, I thought some home soil would do me good, so I then went and worked in a resort on Lizard Island on the Great Barrier Reef. Literally paradise!

It was on this island that I fell in love and my partner and I left for a year travelling through Europe. We did lots of volunteer programs like Worldpackers and Workaway to make this affordable. Now, we are living in Myanmar where I teach English online and Ben works for a conservation group.
