So I’m Phillip a 23 year old kiwi (New Zealander) from the famously stinking town of Rotorua, (that’s not a joke!). At the time of writing this I’m living and working in Toulouse, the rugby capital of France.
I’m somebody who doesn’t like to follow the general status quo which is why I’m the only kiwi in Toulouse that is not an ex All Black or even a professional rugby player! Nope being different is much more important to me which is why I work two jobs…By day I’m a sharky salesman selling swimming equipment in Decathlon sport. Which includes me selling; (but not limited to), swimming caps, nose pegs, togs and even waterproof baby diapers!!!
And by night I’m a specialized sandwich chef who makes high quality custom sandwiches for the affluent and rushed at Subway.
In March 2012 I’m heading off on a bike ride from London to Capetown to raise money for my favourite non-profit organisation -The Acumen Fund.
My grandparents left South Africa in the 1950’s and went to England to escape Apartheid. They are both mixed race and they wanted to give their children a better opportunity. Capetown is where they are from which is why I have chosen to finish my tour in Capetown. So in a way it is my way of doing their trip backwards. I have never been to South Africa and I am very much looking forward to meeting family for the first time.
