I’m very much a person of two halves. You will either find me at home working hard or, when I finally do leave the house, it is normally for an adventure.

I live with my partner and 4 wonderful cats:

I also travel to Cyprus twice a year to assist in neutering stray cats. This is Little Mo recovering.

This is our favourite street cat, Aslan who we have known for years and try to find almost as soon as the aeroplane lands.

If I’m not doing something cat related, I’m probably urban exploring. For those who have never heard of this, it is basically travelling the world exploring abandoned buildings. This is the amazing abandoned communist HQ in Bulgaria.

As you can see, even when I’m urban exploring I am likely wearing something with a cat on it.

On other occasions you can encounter the unexpected. It would emerge that this abandoned copper mine was an active dumping ground for Cyprus’s first serial killer.

Urban exploring can be very hit and miss. Here is one of the many piles of rubble we have accidentally visited.

Another passion is rollercoasters, with one adventure being to go from theme park to theme park on a rollercoaster holiday. As you can see, it does take its toll.

So, what am I doing when I’m not petting cats, urban exploring or flying through the air on a rollercoaster? Skiing.

Skiing didn’t come naturally to me, but after years of battling to stay upright I’m finally at a reasonable level.
