I entered this world in Johannesburg, South Africa in the rocking 70's. During my formative years I was privileged to travel with my parents to various countries as well as attend two excellent private education institutions which enabled me to learn in an 'apartheid-free', equal opportunity environment, free from the influence of a deeply racist government. Something which I have always been grateful to my parents for. After school, unsure of what I was going to do with my life, my father took it upon himself to enroll me in a marketing course, during which I found employment as a part-time fitness instructor. After falling in love with the fitness industry I decided to become a personal trainer and subsequently moved to the Florida Keys where I worked at a health club in an exclusive yacht club called Ocean Reef Club for just under a year. When I returned home I continued to work as a personal trainer for almost a decade. Eventually I grew tired of the same old humdrum of every day life and my desire to travel to more destinations grew so much that I could no longer stand to stay in the same place. So, armed with my eagerness, a handed-down rucksack and trusty British passport, I headed for the most logical place to escape to - London. Unfortunately like so many adventure seekers before me, I got stuck in a job who's relatively low renumeration only enabled me to continue existing in one of the most expensive cities in the world. However, just over a year ago I made a decision to do something about it and began working as a live-in Carer. It was a life-changing decision which has not only enabled me to save due to the lack of expenses but has allowed me to accomplish the goals I had originally set out to achieve when I left my homeland. Since then I have travelled to Italy a couple of times, flown high in Amsterdam and shortly I will be leaving for the shores of Hawaii where I am volunteering. Alohaaaaa
