Bio

‘Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world’
Gustave Flaubert

I’ve wanted to travel and see what’s out there ever since I was small. I don’t know why, though I’ve read that some folk have a curiosity gene.  (for a fuller bio see https://www.because-its-there.uk/).

As a family we holidayed in British seaside resorts, if at all. I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I made my first trip abroad aged 11. A school day trip to Dieppe. And I could have died. (Well maybe.) There was a huge storm in the Channel. Not the last time that happened to me either, though the second occasion I was on a 26 foot catamaran and it was all decidedly more dodgy. Since then I’ve survived thievery, volcanic eruptions, landslides and aircraft engine failure. I’ve been to hospital in Tibet, had my appendix out in Kathmandu and my leg has been encased in plaster after I fell off a waterfall in South America. It hasn’t put me off. It’s a risky business living and driving in the UK too, at times. And I’ve been robbed more often in London than I have abroad.

Another border, another country. As fast as I complete my bucket list, travellers I meet tell me about new fabulous possible destinations. I’ve done thee month trips thinking ‘This will cure me’, but the sense of something new round very corner just makes me worse. When I’m home, my time is taken up planning where to go next.

Now my goal of visiting every country in the world looks possible. I’ve sold my flat in Putney and I have a plan. …tempus fugit.
