A 20 something who accidently landed a desk job and decided to call it quits on the conventional. After finishing university, completing a ski season and having countless adventure on various continents I was left staring blankly at a lifelong ‘normal’ career path, with no idea about where I wanted “to see myself in 5 years.” This lead me to the high seas – thankfully not as a pirate.
I traded in my (somewhat brief) city life for living and working on a billionaires sailing yacht cruising the world’s oceans. Over the past 2 (ish) years I have clocked up around 20,000 nautical miles, completed a Mediterranean summer circuit as well as a winter stint in the Caribbean, 3 Atlantic crossings, crossed into the Arctic Circle and visited countless ports and anchorages along the way. I am in pursuit of constant adventure, excitement and ever changing landscapes, this current home facilitates these needs perfectly. In short, I crew a yacht for a living and write for a passion but am keen to merge the two together.
I now have zero commute to work, I need my salary for very little and the only constant is change. The contract term of a “worldwide itinerary” was (unsurprisingly given my itchy feet) at the top. I see new places, if not every week then certainly every month. With new places, brings a selection of everything else ‘new’ – smells, sounds, tastes, sights, landscapes, culture and people.
From a young age, family holidays spoilt my appetite for travel – think husky dog sledging in Canada, cycling the lakes of Europe to learning to ski. Since then I have been constantly in search of adventure and new places. I have already been extremely lucky, seeing some of the world’s most amazing places and continue to do so both on and off the yacht.
I now say yes to (almost) anything. I go to the top of things, even though I am scared of heights. I sail large oceans, having never sailed before. I learnt to love to dive, after having multiple ‘freak outs’. I decided to pursue my passion to write, understanding it is one of the hardest industries to break into.
This is a space to share my travel experiences and photography, in hope to inspire travel to places that perhaps previously wouldn’t have been considered.
