Most Memorable Travel Experience
- traversing the vastness of the sahara (morocco)
- motorcycling down a winding cliff road on a remote offshore island (croatia)
- plodding through the countryside in a local farmer's horse cart (cuba)
- staring awestruck as the northern lights danced overhead (finland)
- soaking up the sun, sand and surf on an amazing pink sand beach (bahamas)
- getting lost in a hilly village and having the local townsfolk repair my broken-down car, despite not understanding a word of what they were saying (thailand)
- gatecrashing a traditional scottish wedding, complete with kilts and bagpipes (scotland)
i am a wheeler-dealer, wanderer, hitchhiker, vagabond, conquistador, stargazer, poet, philosopher, foodie, shopaholic, binge drinker, card player, caped crusader, space invader and occasional law student.

in addition i also run two companies of my own, and am in the process of developing a program to facilitate volunteer placements in various (rural) parts of asia.

i absolutely subscribe to the ethos that there's no point in living if you don't feel alive - and that anything in the world is worth trying at least once.

When you live in Venice you figure it out... and it is so much better. I had come to Venice as a tourits many times before I lived here and I never really liked it, but all those amazing things they say about it become true when you live here. next time youre around i'll show you...
