Why “Life Beyond Borders?”

I tried to live the 9-5 Mon – Fri and love my country of birth…I tried really hard, but day by day, my soul was being eaten up.  So I changed and took control of my life, before it took control of me.

This blog was started in 2010, once I’d been in Greece for two years & after having spent the summer of that year teaching in Cairo, Egypt.  I fully intended to stay there, but found my love of Greece eventually drew me back.

Having fallen in love with the culture, language, sights and smells of the Hellenic world, I wanted to share my experiences and I write about the cultural differences I have observed, the beautiful places I have visited and the people who have let me into their homes and hearts. But it doesn’t stop there:


From trips across Canada by rail to the polar bear capital of the world, across the U.S.A in a Green Tortoise bus and even from Europe to Hong Kong on a container ship, you’ll find stories here about my varied worldwide adventures.

I want to take you beyond the borders of geography, and your mind.
