Having grown up travelling across the world I’ve developed an addiction to all things spice and to travel! When it was time to go to university I wandered off to the UK for a new adventure and have not managed to leave yet!
Initially reluctant to engage in any outdoor activities as I was an absolute wuss as a child, my parents introduced to me adventure sports by taking me scuba diving at an early age and I’m gradually overcoming my fear of just about everything by kayaking, hiking, biking and climbing.
Moving to the UK has shown me how much fun getting out and about is and has made me develop a passion for the outdoors.
Place to Play
One of my first holidays to the UK was a caravanning tour of England, travelling from south-east to the midlands via Cambridge, with a jaunt into the Peak District and Wales, and back down again via the Cotswolds and Bath. This was when I fell in love with the area and knew I wanted to move abroad to the UK later in life. Since then I’ve explored the northern reaches of England, being especially partial to the Lake District. It’s the place I’m the keenest to do some more exploring in!
Not a lot of people know this
I featured in a Sri Lankan TV commercial for internet as a Dutch farm girl when I was seven; clogs, pigtails and all.
