Outdoorsy in the sense that she likes to get drunk on patios! Can usually be found at the beach or on the slopes- depending on how far from the equator she is.

Lewis Jones

Driving to epic tunes, exploring, hiking, living on a budget and learning a smidge of Spanish - it's all in a day's work!

This nomad is a true traveller having survived through a white-tail spider bite, becoming homeless, having her campervan broken into and all her belongings stolen before heading to Bali - nothing gets in her way to continue living the dream and travelling on!
