Travel Blogger from Ireland – More about my story
In late 2013 I quit my job, travelled to Cape Town and began cycling Africa. It was drastic action to take, of course, especially considering I had no cycling experience, but I was entirely disillusioned with life and having also lost both parents, I was living amidst a very depressing reality.
However, during this Africa bicycle tour, I would discover many things, not the least of which was an interest in writing about outdoor adventures. Except when I finished the Africa bicycle tour it was also incredibly difficult adapting back to my old lifestyle and the routine it brought. In the end, I decided there had to be a way of turning my newfound passion into something I did for a living and the only way I knew to go about this, was by taking back to the road and offering my services as a writer to small businesses.
I now operate the above-mentioned marketing agency as a lead content writer and in time, this has allowed me to fund smaller journeys into the outdoors, with a view to taking another epic long distance adventure when the time is right. Thankfully, I have recently taken steps to return to these outdoor adventures on a permanent basis, which will start when I begin hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in 2018.
