QUIRKY, for me, is about being real, about seeing the world from a different angle, about looking at things from all sides, finding the unusual, the interesting, the fascinating. It’s about quality combined with classiness, it’s about being curious about everything and wanting to know more…
Born in the seaside town of Southport, NW England, I have lived and worked all over the world. For 4 years I was in Greece, exploring the Mamma Mia life, then I moved to the Far East, having great adventures whilst living in Hong Kong and Singapore. During those years I journeyed to many different countries, including Egypt, Turkey, South Africa, Nepal, America, Thailand, Borneo, the Philippines and Malaysia. More recently I have travelled around Spain and France, stayed in Dubai and New Zealand. Meeting new people, discovering fascinating cultures, eating strange foods and seeing curious customs, has fuelled my fascination with the breadth and depth of experiences that travel gifts to us.
A travel writer and speaker I give talks and radio chats on a wide range of travel topics and am currently researching how we inspire others. Check out The Quirky Traveller blog for more of my writing and articles from other travellers.
I’m also a business coach specialising in Leadership for entrepreneurs, For more details on Leadership and Business Coaching, visit my website www.chartwellcoaching.co.uk
Now based in north Lancashire near the Lake District, one of the most diverse and lovely parts of the world, I share my passion for living with my family, including my son and friends throughout the UK and beyond.
These musings are about travels of mind, body and soul, recognising that life is not one, two or even three-dimensional, but multi-dimensional. I look forward to sharing QUIRKY TRAVELLER TALES with you – a celebration of life, its magic and uniqueness.
