About Life Of Y

Hey guys, welcome to Life Of Y! I’m Jeff – just your average 30-something-year-old, Aruban born to Chinese parents, based in the UK, newbie blogger! I knew from the moment I went backpacking back in 2006 that there must be more to life than the whole 'eat, sleep, work, repeat' routine!

Since then, I've been to 49 countries, 6 continents and seen all 7 world wonders and I want to tell you all about my experiences, good and bad. More importantly, I want to express my opinions as honestly and openly as I can. If someone like me can travel to so many amazing places then surely you can too?!
