About @cbr600


Spent the early part of my adult life working in the gambling industry in the UK as a manager, in my mid-30's I started to hanker over a bit of adventure and wanted to see the world. So, after a fair bit of saving and planning I resigned and headed off to backpack (and do some volunteering en-route) for a few months ..... which became 17 months. So, during 2007, 2008 and 2009 I travelled through Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, (popped a foot into Paraguay over the Itaipu dam !), New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Dubai, Rwanda and Croatia !!
After returning to UK to "grow up and get a job" I found I couldn't get Latin America out of my system, so, after a year and a bit of topping up my bank balance I'm back in Peru ! For how long ? No-one knows !

The plan is "no plan".

I spent a couple of months travelling around Peru in 2008 and I returned here in 2011 and am still here, working voluntarily with an organisation dealing with marine conservation. I am currently based in Lima, spending a lot of time working out of the port of Pucusana.
