Getting started . . .

I work in finance. Was that a yawn I just saw you stifiling? Yes its boring but I’m a nerd and get psychotic amounts of joy from formatting spreadsheets and trawling through data looking for anomalies. However I will admit there are way better joys in life like travel so hence this blog. My job is thankfully a steady pay check and has decent leave so I am quite lucky and I get to pursue my travel passion until my hearts content. . literally. My passion for travel began with my parents they brought me to the Algarve, Portugal when I was 6 and the golden sandy beaches, the fresh fish (yes I was one of those weird foodie kids) and the general foreign feel to the whole place was fascinating. The fact everytime I walked in somewhere I was to say Ola rather than hello and at dinner I was to say abrigado rather than thank you was a thrill for me and so grew this insatiable appetite to see the world. As my passion grew from experience rather than stories my travel goals are not to knock as many countries off the list as possible but rather absorb as many experiences in as many places as possible  So this blog is starting from a point in time however there are many places I have been and experienced that I wont be writing about as to do it justice would be impossible as it was too long ago and a lot of the photos are not digital. .

So far my list is this:

United States of America : New York, Florida, Boston, Washington DC

Iceland (coverd the whole country)

The Netherlands (Amsterdam)

United Kingdom (Leeds, Cambridge, London, Southampton, Bournemouth)
