My passion for travel began when I started working as Cabin Crew for Virgin Atlantic at the age of 18. I didn’t have a plan when I left school (I didn’t really excel at anything…..probably because I hardly ever showed up) and the thought of university TERRIFIED me. So, going against the grain of everyone else that was submitting their university applications, instead I decided to embrace the shiny red shoes, the red lipstick and go see the world.
As many of you know I am a Paramedic (who has a serious case of Wanderlust) that has been working for the NHS for nearly 7 years. As a whole I enjoy my job immensely. I have made some of the most fabulous friends whom I practically consider as family, I have saved lives and welcomed lives and the desire that I have to help people is something which has been hard wired in to me from a young age. Recently however, I have been finding the state of my mental health faltering and I am not ashamed to say that I have been struggling to find that mythical work-life balance that we all strive for.
