A little #metoo from me to you.

I was cheerfully reminded of an old, faded wound by Facebook today.10 whole years ago, at the tender age of 20, I was at the start of my world travels when I fell victim to the truly terrifying experience of being roofied. One minute I was on my first drink, the next I was collapsed in the middle of a Manly Street in Australia. It’s barely a footnote in my travelling diaries, but, as we approach #InternationalWomensDay this week, I am reminded that it is a memory I should both share and acknowledge.I was lucky enough to be with some exceptional friends on the other side of the world who reacted and protected me, but, so many others’ stories don’t end so well. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, be aware and protect yourself as you party
