My real life began when I jacked in my job at a bank and went on a solo round the world backpacking trip back in 1997. After that, there was no way I could go back to the rat race in the doom and gloom of the UK so I did what I had to in order to become a TEFL teacher so that I could live and work abroad.

I set off to do a teaching course in Barcelona 10 years ago and thanks to teaching, I've lived in Spain, Tanzania, Venezuela and now Portugal and been able to travel to many more places besides. I'm settled in Portugal now and am enjoying getting to know my adopted country better and writing about it.
