Inspiration
In 2009 I returned to the UK from a 16 month sabbatical. I travelled / worked throughout New Zealand, Australia and Thailand. I continue to travel when I can, it has given me a fantastic insight into many different cultures and experiences, which I endeavour to be positively influenced by.
