ABOUT ME.

HI! I’M JAMIE, A TRAVEL BLOGGER AND PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN DURHAM, ENGLAND.

Two of my greatest passions are photography and travelling.  When those are combined, well, it’s like the stars have aligned and I’ve found my calling.

A lot of people say that ‘travel is in their blood.’  For me though, I’m pretty certain my fascination with travel came from my childhood lifestyle.  I’m an RAF child and, every three years or so, that meant packing up home, saying goodbye to your friends and moving to the next city or country.  As they say, life isn’t meant to be lived in one place.

Since the age of 16, I worked as hard as I could to become a lawyer.  There was nothing I wanted more, or at least I thought.  I qualified as a lawyer in 2014 after seven years of university, law school and training.  Just like anyone who wants to see the world, the 9-5 lifestyle just wasn’t cutting it and so, after an operation in 2017, I decided to leave my job along with my partner and book a one-way flight to Australia.  With my camera and enough money for a year, we explored as much of Australia as we could before our campervan broke down in the outback and we had to quickly hop around South East Asia before flying home.

I’m back in the UK now and, after almost 2 years, I’m starting to feel a lot more settled. I’m back working full-time as a solicitor again, in a completely different area of law, but I’ve never felt as content as I do now. I’m planning on keeping the adventures going so if you’re interested in the adventures of a guy in his thirties then stick around!

On this blog you’ll find photography and writing that hopefully will inspire your own adventures.  You’ll find travel tips, destination guides and a handful of stories on both here in the UK and abroad.  If what I write about or the photos I share here inspire you then, quite frankly, I’m happy.  All I want is to make sure that my life doesn’t go stale and that I am in constant motion; always learning and moving forwards.  Life is far too short remember; if you want something you have to go and get it!
