We’re off on an adventure, and we’re hoping to document it on this here blog. How well that works out is anyone’s guess.

So who are we?

Having worked in IT in the City of London for the past five years, I’m escaping to do something a little different – to take a break from work for a bit, and then hopefully to come back with a fresh perspective and fresh direction. When I’m not working for the devil, I’ve been keenly involved in Woodcraft Folk, most recently helping out at CoCamp.

After years of working towards my PhD in Molecular Cell Biology I’m looking forward to ditching the lab coat for a bit (plus getting to wear open toe sandals) and finally getting away to see the world. This is the dream that kept me going through the hard times, I can’t believe it’s finally happening!
