About the Expert
In 2003, after what she describes as a rather too close brush with the Grim Reaper, Deneice decided life was meant to be lived as if each day was her last. She sold her house and gave away almost all her belongings, including her successful professional gymnastics coaching business. With her surfboard under her arm and her pack on her back she set out to see what the world could show her. Fifteen years on she is still doing it - without a single regret - and with the majority of those years spent wandering the planet as a solo traveler.
In 2010 she began writing and found to her surprise and delight that there were many people who were prepared to pay her for her words. This meant the end of a string of minimum wage jobs around the world which had previously been used to top up the travel funds. Her work as a freelance writer allows her to set up her 'office' wherever she happens to be - from beach huts to the middle of the jungle; sometimes she takes on voluntary work too.
She describes herself as a permanent nomad hopelessly addicted to travel and the excitement of constantly learning and exploring, getting lost and found, never knowing what is around the next corner and having amazing encounters with incredible people. For her, everywhere and nowhere is home.
Along with the vast collection of memories, stories and adventures her travels have given her she has also discovered, uncovered, realized and gathered a wealth of knowledge. This has made her traveling life significantly easier, far cheaper and helps her to squeeze every last drop of fun from her solo travels.
