I travel for...
I like nothing more then experiencing new cultures and learning how others live. It has been eye opening to see the cultural differences; enjoying a cup of chai with the local lads in Mumbai, to the elaborate ancient traditions of the tea ceremony in Kyoto. It was incredible to stroll through the majestic temples of Myanmar and meet the local monks. I was welcomed into a local village in Bagan and experienced the local customs and traditions. I have come to learn, that in all different cultures, the poorest people can be the most giving and their generosity stays with you forever.
Wildlife is a joy to me. Experiencing the Amazon and Galápagos Islands was very special and like nowhere I have ever been before. Being in the land of animals rather than humans completely changed my outlook of the world we live in today. Meeting a blue-footed bobbie up close, seeing flocks of beautiful amazonian parrots fly right in front of me and my favourite of all, seeing a sleepy sloth up a tree, were some of the most breathtaking experiences.
