ABOUT

The 15th of August 2017 is where this adventure begins. I had spent the past two years working in corporate London, the last year of which I had almost been willing it to happen.

Don't get me wrong, some people are cut out for desk jobs and working for a boss. It has obvious inherent advantages. Regular hours, regular paychecks and stability. For some people that is exactly what they are after.
