The Beginning

Let’s go back to where it all started.

It was November 2014 and I had just finished a summer of performing at music festivals around the UK. I was an unsure teenager and had spent the majority of that summer living in my van.

As the summer drew to an end I couldn’t bare the thought of going back to a mundane job so I started to search for something, I had no idea what, just something.

After weeks of researching different working abroad schemes and volunteer camps, I thought “Heck I’ll just book a flight to the furthest away place I can think of.” So I bought a one way ticket to New Zealand.

As I’m writing this I am in Australia. Three and a half years have gone by since I left the UK in 2014.

I am 23 years old, I have no life savings, no career and no plans of buying a house. What I do have is three and a half years worth of adventures, incredible experiences and even the odd traumatic story to tell.

So I’ve decided to start a blog to share my ideas and advice.

A journal, from the bottom of my heart to you.
