Yep! It’s true! I’ve slept on the odd airport floor; missed flights, eaten weird foods, had the runs, the voms and even been spat at! I’ve been shouted shots post dance off with a funny little person who called herself Midget, got lost climbing mountains and crossing countless fields, met movie stars, fallen in love and looked stupid in front of more people than you would believe.

Globetrotting is about my adventures chasing those moments that make life worth living. Pushing myself to the limits, trying new things, and conquering my fears. I eat, I drink, I hike, I climb, I ride things (the Gen Y in me wants to say ‘Yeah I do!’). I seek new experiences in both exotic and familiar places.

I confess to the occasional bout of temporary insanity – like getting naked in public, or challenging an Irish man to a drinking contest which of course ended in the ‘never do again’ list! But mostly, I’m up for trying things at least once.

Assuming I survive these mishaps, I will write about them.

Come on in and have a look around, leave some comments, and offer your feedback.
