In the first instance this will be a 'chunk by chunk' posting of my book 'Jumping Off The Edge Of The World'.
In 1999 I threw in the towel on a relationship and my job and blew the deposit I'd saved for a flat in London on a trip around the world. During that journey I travelled through New Zealand, and when I left I knew that I had to live there.
In 2002, dragging my boyfriend with me (he didn't actually mind too much), I left life as I knew it in the UK behind, quit the rat race and moved to New Zealand to see what life would bring.
'Jumping Off The Edge Of The World' is a thirty-something city girl's experience of starting all over again at the other side of the globe. It's honest, entertaining, educational and a a jolly good read.
If you've ever considered running away and joining the circus, emigrating to a new country or you just like travel books, then this is a good place to come.
