  • Description

    Hello. Peace be with you!

    Me - I’ve been travelling for some years now, using my website to record my journey in photography and words and film. On my way I have spent much time in Muslim countries like Morocco and Senegal in my favourite desert landscape, also Israel, Greece, Spain and Italy have become second-homes, additionally I have a deep love for tropical countries like India and Ghana, The Gambia etc... always searching for the true wilderness.
    To support myself on my travels, I have variously worked as a photographer, model, English teacher, painter, a volunteer in orphanages, hostels and farms, and done a lot of collaborative work with my website www.diaryofanaesthete.com - where I record my journey around the globe and highlight causes, charities and tourist sites of import.

    I LOVE slow travel, sustainable tourism ideals. Teamwork, warm sun, new experiences and growth of my soul is all I look for in this life... I am an animal and people lover and have many stories to share from my journeys. Looking forward to hearing your stories too.

    I am a flexible, dynamic person, love any chance to get creative, interact with new cultures, language, people - adore the outdoors, trekking, walking, gardening, and worship the natural world. I have a lot of stories and photographs yet to be shared!
    I also really enjoy hospitality, meeting new people, other travellers, exchanging stories and experiencing new ways of life. Not afraid to get my hands dirty or get a good sweat on. I prefer spiritually-inclined people, but anyone with enthusiasm and energy for this crazy and colourful life is perfect me.
    Looking forward to sharing an adventure with you!
