My name is Veronica May and my life at the moment is a little less ordinary. I work offshore on a boat! A big one. My rotation is 5 weeks on, 5 weeks off, so for half the year I spend my time traveling. My aim is to continue exploring a new part of the world, and never go back to the same place.
For most people, the questions, “Where are you from?” or “Where do you live?” doesn’t usually leave them blank-faced looking like a rabbit caught in headlights. This happens to me, and I get this question a lot. You see I’m not your average girl. I’ve lived in 5 different countries and moved homes 8 times. I’m mixed race and have 3 different nationalities. Talk about identity crisis! So my job doesn’t exactly help me find a place to call home.
But I would never dream of anything different. Exploring the world, learning about new cultures, trying different cuisines and meeting new people makes me happy.
So far I’ve climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Mt. Kinibalu in Borneo and the Himalayas, dived the Great Barrier Reef, skydived over it, dived with manta rays in Indonesia, kayaked with Orca whales through Vancouver Islands, got lost in the city life of New York & London, swam with reeftip sharks in Oman, bathed in the natural hot pools of Iceland, bunjy-jumped in New Zealand, rode elephants in Thailand, partied like there was no tomorrow in Miami…the list goes on and I can’t wait to start planning my next adventure!
I’d love to share my journey with you and hope to inspire you in any way I can. It always means a lot to hear your thoughts and travel suggestions too!
