ABOUT THE WORKING NOMAD
I am from sunny old England who started the whole travel thing when I was 30. My 20s were spent working hard in London as an I.T. Contractor and a corporate slave.
I have been working as a freelance web designer and now professional backpacker! Travel changed my view on life and I quickly realised that working for big business and climbing the corporate ladder was n’t for me.
My Hobbies and Interests
Well Ii guess it goes without saying that I love travel. I also have a great passion for the Internet while trying to avoid being a web geek!
I love going surfing whether it be at my favourite beach in England (Woolacoombe Bay) or anywhere else. I first learnt to surf in New Zealand in 2003 during a one year round the world trip. I have since surfed in Australia, Bali, Malaysia, Southern Spain and of course Devon & Cornwall in England.
Keeping to the outdoors I love trekking and being in the mountains. Indeed the country I am most looking forward to visiting is Nepal for the hiking (ain’t gonna happen for a while now!)
One of the highlights on my last trip away was climbing Mount Kinabalu in Borneo. The 4000 metre mountain is the highest I’ve been to date but this will change in Nepal when I plan to go as high as 5500 metres on the Annapurna Circuit.
Away from the outdoors I enjoy watching sport, in particular football, rugby, cricket and tennis.
I like seeing live bands. Anything from REM in London’s Hyde Park, to Reading Festival or a small up and coming band in the Dublin Castle, Camden, North London.
