How do you take your coffee?
Who wants it with a slice of cake anyway?
I'll take it with a slice of life please..
While writing a blog about my journey on a one-way ticket through South America in 2014, just for my friends and family to keep up on, I ended up getting some great responses.
Not only did I find out I spend way too much time looking for the cheapest price going on EVERYTHING, I also realized there was a lot of travellers out there who didn't.
Solution? Document it, Write it, Shout about it. Drink Coffee.
And that I did.
I have no big life changing story for you sorry; yeah I quit my job and sold all my belongings, but what travel blogger hasn't these days?
I have been traveling for about 8 years now from Ski Trips in Europe to Scuba Diving in the Maldives and about 60 other countries in-between. Ultimately, I am just in love with the open road, and writing about it, and will do almost anything to keep living my dream...
I tend not to think, in fact, thinking bores me, I like spontaneity, this also reflects in my writing, so forgive me, you will most probably find some grammatical mistakes, I brush it off as part of my charm...? No?
2011-2013: Worked in a bank, had a mortgage- bored me. Got a backpack took 2 months off work and travelled to Asia- did NOT bore me. Worked in a summer camp in USA as a lifeguard then travelled for a month around the states.
2013/2014: Started this blog! Backpacked South and Central America, Mexico and USA for a year. HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE. Did my Dive master qualification in Turkey for a few months
2015: Got a job in Micronesia on a Scuba dive live aboard. Worked and lived on the boat for 3 months, Then came to Hong Kong for a few days- and ended up falling in love with the city and getting a job as an Editor. Still here now!
Why the name Coffee with a slice of Life?
Ermm, honestly? Because I love coffee and it tends to be a priority where ever I visit, also I love cake but I didn't want it to sound like a cookery website, so life it is. No cake, Just life.
