I'm really just an accidental traveller, it just happens that when I chase work opportunities or follow friends I usually end up overseas. As a young tennis player, desperate to escape the miserable UK weather I managed to secure a tennis scholarship in the US for 4 years. Then later, when I completed a degree in the UK my best friend persuaded me to take a year out in Canada so I lived and gained work experience in Toronto, a wonderful way to obtain work experience.

Last September a friend of mine invited me to the Island of Brac in Croatia and we had an amazing time. I didn't realise that she had two holiday houses over there, both of them set in lovely villages overlooking the sea,I wanted to write about my time in Croatia as its a lovely destination for a last minute holiday, check out my web link below.

I enjoy travel and the challenges of being abroad but Yorkshire in the UK will always be the special place that's home. A web developer by trade I have some flexibility where I can work and I'm still active in the digital sector. As someone who enjoys writing I find web blogs, forums and article sites are perfect outlets. I always write from experience and tell it like it is and hope that others find useful the stuff that I produce.
