"Short stories and travel reports from my life adventures around the globe".


Travel Qatar

My seventeen year adventure living, working and traveling the world began way back in the summer of 2001 when I left The UK for Doha. It was here that I trained to become an English teacher and where I landed my first teaching job.

It wasn’t an easy place for a twenty three year old guy to find himself in, but Qatar taught me a lot about the challenges of a different culture and ultimately whet my appetite for more global adventures. Have a look at my article on:
