For just on 20 years, I had the privilege to explore the world courtesy of working for two major airlines. Along the way I completed a journalism degree, which included studies in photography and furthered this with a post-graduate degree in teaching.
After retiring my ‘wings’, I decided to simply see where the proverbial road would take me.
It has taken me to live on a remote island off the coast of Taiwan where I taught English. Worked as a photojournalist for an animal sanctuary in India and time spent in Cambodia helping to build an English school.
As a passionate Vegan, I’m expanding/ changing my blog to include recipes I create from plant-based ingredients. It is in it’s infancy, however I hope it shall grow, as I do.
In the meantime I continue to dabble in freelance journalism, and to use my camera to capture the essence of what I see and love in everyday life.
Of course always sharing my road are my amazing sons, who as young adults, are now starting to forge their own journey’s, and walking alongside the 3 of us are our ever- faithful and somewhat crazy 4-legged friends, Stanley & Oscar, Simon & Eddie.
