About Prue

I’m Prue, 25 and an Aussie. I like animals (like most gay women right?!), I get restless often and I like lists. I’m also an Aries, afraid of scary movies, hate long walks and a sucker for the nutella jar .

My travels erupted into my life when I was 18 when friends and I booked a package tour to Thailand.  A year later I was exploring Fiji with a another great group of girls and at some point my lifelong priorities changed. My university studies continued but my job hours increased to fund my unrelenting desire to travel further for longer. In the long summer breaks during my degree I explored South East Asia but the more I saw, the more there was to see. Finding the underwater world truly mesmerising, I soon realised that this passion could turn into a profession that would enable me to make money while travelling. Diving could take me to corners of the globe I never knew existed and allow me to travel indefinitely! This idea was too good to be true.

About Prue, World travel, Straight on Detour

.

I graduated in 2010 – I don’t know how – and left within 24hours of my final exam back to SEA with my backpack, no return ticket and my dive master course at the other end. Oooh la la! What can I say, I found my niche. Travelling on my own for that year I volunteered with wildlife in Borneo, taught at a school on the Thai/Laos border and rambled about the Philippines for 3 months, coming back to diving to get more cash to carry on. When I returned to Australia for my sister’s wedding I was motivated by one thing; attaining more skills, gathering more cash and going back out on the road. I had learnt who I was and what I wanted to do. I wanted to travel.

ABout Prue -Straight on Detour - World travel

Four years of world travel later and my priorities haven’t changed, my enthusiasm for exploration is as vibrant now as it ever was. I am still travelling and I’m still skint BUT I don’t do it all on my own anymore. I met Becks my partner nearly 3 years ago in Thailand both working as Dive Guides in the Similan Islands and it was because of her ‘silly bet’  and her endless charm that we ended up travelling through western China for three months and on to central Asia. This four month adventure sparked the concept of owning our own travel website which has transpired into …. this!

.

After getting to know Asia for so many years I have finally torn myself away and have reached the other side of the world. I’ve found more adventures than I ever though possible and have fallen for the unknown. Plans are not made, visa are not obtained, routes are not sketched out and we have no solid base on the horizon.  However we do have our laptops, cameras, passport and an abnormally large sense of wanderlust – that’s all you need right?

.

So that’s me to a tee. Say g’day!
