Half-English/half-Irish, I am an ex-teacher and modern art/street art enthusiast constantly seeking new places to travel to. At the start of 2018, my life was rubbish – I was unhappy in my job, my relationship, and struggling with poor health after being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, a chronic medical condition. Life felt like a daily battle until I had an epiphany. I underwent a radical detox, leaving behind my old life, selling my possessions. In June 2018 I set off round the world with a heart and mind hungry for new places, people and adventures… Read the rest of my story here About Me.

Today I am safe, happy, and in much better health. I hope reading my blog inspires others to have the courage to live the life of their dreams, a life that makes them proud of who they are and all that they have to offer the world. Be kind, be honest, be true to yourself. Peace, Lisa.

NOTE: Harassment is a criminal offence and a civil action under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 in the UK. Further fake accounts (either on Instagram, Facebook or email) created to contact me or provoke a reaction from me will be reported. Further online abuse will also be reported. I left Dubai to get away from an emotionally abusive situation and have continued to speak out as the attempts to control/manipulate/intimidate me have persisted. I’ve never written anything publicly I couldn’t prove in a court of law so people who have villainised me for telling the truth should pipe down. My life in Dubai was destroyed by emotional abuse; I spoke out to ensure it does not happen again to someone else and to stand up for myself. I’m no one’s scapegoat/punchbag and I don’t deserve to be. Enough is enough. This is now a police matter so I seriously suggest that the abuse and harassment stop immediately and we all get on with our lives in peace. I am positively rebuilding my life day by day so leave me be. Thank you.
