My independent travels started at the age of 16 exploring and living in America, Australia, and South Africa. I was then lucky enough to spend 13 years working with sports and music groups travelling throughout Europe. Craving more exotic destinations I took myself overland from England through Russia and Asia to finally reach the Southern Hemisphere by cargo ship. Then there was Antarctica…wow!
