So this is where it all starts..

I’ve been nagging my husband to leave the UK for the past 10 years with no real idea of what we would do or where we would go – I just knew that I didn’t want to be embroiled in the corporate trap all my life.  My spare time was literally taken up searching for our escape in the next perfect holiday and there just had to be more to life…

Beautiful Diva Andaman..
Beautiful Diva Andaman..

When we boarded this beautiful boat in Thailand in April 2013, freshly qualified in scuba diving and eager to put our new skills into practice, little did we know this holiday would be the turning point in our lives..

12 months on and we are just about ready to leave the UK – My husband qualified to become a Scuba Dive Instructor in November 2013 and is working hard to gain a credible Dive portfolio, I’ve handed my notice in to the company I have loved working at for the past 17 years… And our house is sold.. Wow.. This is pretty scary but we wouldn’t have it any other way.. Life begins at 39 – right?

Bound for pastures new, we still haven’t got a defined plan – Crazy? Yes.. Exciting? Fuck yes!  We just know we will be leaving in July.. Sri Lanka, Thailand, The Philippines are all on our list of places to start… Who wouldn’t want to wake up in paradise every day??


Go confidently in the direction of your dreams and live the life you’ve imagined…
