My ancestors travelled from England, Ireland, Scotland and Portugal to create new lives in the antipodes. I inherited their restless spirits, and their “travel” genes. I took it a level further – I travelled to other countries for better opportunities, as they did, but I was also fortunate to be able to travel for leisure and learning as well.

Having lived and worked in four countries, travel has been a fairly big part of my adult life. After practising law for many years with travelling only during annual leave, the time came to retire – it was the opportunity to travel in earnest.
