I’m a small town girl from Victoria, Australia with big dreams. Dreams that mostly include going somewhere, seeing places and doing things.

When I was five years old I started saving to travel the world and in 2014, at the age of 21, I left for a 14 month solo trip covering three continents.

That was four years ago and since then, I have struggled to stay home for any longer than six months before leaving again. Whenever I return from a trip, the first question people ask me is, “So where to next?”. What can I say? Travel got me good.

I’m not aiming to visit every country in the world (although that would be nice) or tick off a bucket list of places, I aim for slower, more meaningful and challenging adventures. I prefer home stays, cheap hostels or a tent rather than fancy hotels or resorts. I would rather cross a border by land than travel by air. I would prefer to get lost in the jungle in the Northeast corner of India than line up to get into the Taj Mahal for sunrise. Buses and trains are my favourite way to travel, although if I can walk somewhere then I will. You’re more likely to find me sitting next to some locals eating from a street cart than at a restaurant with other tourists. In short, I’m not your average traveller.

I love sharing my stories and photos and talking anything travel, although please don’t ask me where my favourite place has been or where I’m going next because I don’t know the answer to either.

This site is a combination of photos, videos and blog posts on where I’ve been, what I’ve seen and the things I’ve done, so far.
