Hello and welcome to my world!
Two years ago I surfaced from the breakup of a long-term relationship and moved from the beautiful countryside of South Wales, in the UK, to the cosmopolitan city of London. I had a challenging job, found a great place to live and my new life was looking extremely promising.
I thought that was as much of a life-changing adventure to be having in mid life, whilst I figured out what to do next!
But then in an unexpected encounter I met Ian Usher – maybe you remember? He was the guy who sold his life on eBay to finance 100 goals in 100 weeks.
We “clicked” and it wasn’t long before I was to find out the real meaning of “life change”. Within just a couple of months I had given up my job, my home, my entire life in the UK to move to Panama where I lived with Ian on his small Caribbean island.
Within two months we were featured in a UK TV documentary with Ben Fogle – New Lives in the Wild.
You can see the show at this YouTube link, if you are outside the UK:
Within another six months we had bought an RV in Texas, and spent six glorious months traveling around the Southern States of America.
We ticked off one of my bucket list items by hiking the Grand Canyon, not just north to south, but then back across – 45 miles in all. You can read about that adventure here:
Now we are living and working as English teachers in China and our next adventure will be in December when we travel to Victoria, Australia to house sit a beautiful property for 2 months.

My life has changed and challenged me in ways I would never have imagined and I’d like to share some of my past, present and future experiences with you on this website.
“Diverging Roads” will I hope, be an inspiration for some of you to also embark upon “the road less traveled”.
