Why am I different? This is a story of my life, who I am and what I get up to…Enjoy and travel safe ;}
”Why am I different?’ started a few years ago for a book which is still a working progress but had to take a back seat whilst I setup Flooglebinder and ‘Why am I different? . However, this will give you an insight in to who I am, what I get up to and all the experiences that make me who I am today.
I was born in 1983 into a big Jewish community and whilst not religious, we certainly keep our traditions, which for us is about family, friends and obviously food. I took the science route and studied Marine Biology at Portsmouth University which was the start of my passion for travelling. After graduating I worked in sales and recruitment for 2 years until I could save enough for my first round the world trip, some of which you’ll discover here. The truth is, after returning I became hooked for travelling, meeting new people, exploring new cultures, tasting new foods and simply seeing the amazing things that this world has to offer. Once you get that kind of bug is very difficult to get rid of!
I don’t think I have ever been in the UK without a flight booked somewhere, although I did panic back in January 2013 as realised I had no flights booked, so within a few weeks had three return fares arranged within a week. My passion for travelling and sharing my adventures will never go and in pursuit of living this dream, me and a very good friend of mine, Ian, decided to setup a company to help others enjoy our experiences. Flooglebinder is about promoting sustainable travel to preserve these habitats for the future and help people travel with our trusted partners, all of which will be documented here.
Life is a funny journey and there are many different paths we can take, all I know is that I want to enjoy every minute of it, and share my adventures with you about ‘Why am I different?’ – and who knows maybe I’m not, maybe I’m the same as many, have similar thoughts, want similar things, or maybe I’m here to do something different – we’ll see. Enjoy my thoughts, enjoy my photos and enjoy my experiences, feel free to ask anything, and hopefully I’ll see you out there on this exciting journey.
Travel Safe ;}
