Hi, I’m Adam I have always been interested in travel and wanted to see what the world has to offer. I studied at Brighton university for three years and graduated in July 2013 with an FdSc in Arboriculture (Trees) and a BSc in Ecology. After university i worked as a tree surgeon/Arborist and a consultant for the run up to leaving to travel the world. I haven’t left to escape anything bad or a boring life i love my life back home, I have brilliant family, friends and girlfriend I just want to see what’s out there.

I embarked on my first trip around the world with my mate John on the 18th August 2015 and had been saving up to do so for around two years. This included many seven day working weeks to save enough money to have the trip of my life. I have wanted to travel for as long as i can remember and have been fortunate that i have been to a few countries around the globe but i have never been away for longer than a few weeks and hope to throw myself into other cultures.

The places where I travelled through on my first trip were:
America, Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, Bali, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the Phillipines
I travelled for around eight months and along the way my girlfriend Becky joined me in America for a week and Malaysia for five weeks where we travelled north throughout Thailand. My Mum, Rowena, and my little sister, Liv also flew out to Thailand for a week for Christmas and new year.

I started my blog for my first trip and am just a normal person writing about what experiences I encounter along the way and so i can remember my trip and also so all my friends and family and anyone else can read what I get up to. My aim is is to tell you what I have been up to and if i can put a smile on your face then im happy. It would be great if my blog inspires anyone to travel. You don’t have to quit your job or leave your normal life to travel. You can travel in as little as a few days by moving around a country or city which gives you the opportunity to experience it to the full.
Let me know what you think by leaving comments or getting in touch. I will try and post up any tips that i learn along the way as i read a few before i left which helped me.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as i enjoy writing about my experiences.
