I am a Tasmanian-born journalist who left the island (by choice - I wasn't voted off) to explore the world.
At 26 I left Australia - leaving a career in journalism and mortgage in my wake - to find fun, adventure and beautiful things around the world.
Since 2011 I have been travelling, working and living in North America, Europe and the United Kingdom.
I hope to inspire you to follow your own travel dreams by showing you it's possible to see the world independently, safely and on a budget.

Australia is one huge country – which makes standing at The Tip, the northernmost point of the continent, an awe-inspiring experience.
Cape Tribulation is the meeting point for two world heritage areas – The Wet Tropics World Heritage Area and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. And yes it’s as spectacular as it sounds.
The Bloomfield Track is a 30km 4WD-only road between Cape Tribulation and Cooktown. It’s impassable in the wet season and challenging in the dry – even more so when you tow an six-metre caravan behind you.
The Daintree River is an interesting place – one minute you’re walking on a gravel road passing cattle and horses, the next you’re collecting coconuts and watching for crocodiles.
No matter how long I’m gone for, the North-West Coast of Tasmania will always be home. When I visited the region after three years overseas I spent a day driving to some of my favourite spots.
It’s been three years since I left Australia to live and travel overseas. A year ago I never would have predicted I’d be back in Australia for my anniversary, but here I am. So what has my third year of travel entailed? Find out here.
Posted on May 14, 2014 | 2 CommentsI had expectations of Kosovo as a country still finding its identity after a war that wasn't all that long ago. So I was surprised to instead discover a country that was traveller-friendly and packed with fascinating history, culture and sights.
Posted on February 28, 2014 | 3 CommentsI was about to board a bus to Urfa in Turkey when he came up to me. An hour later he helped me explain to Turkish guards why I didn't have my passport. Then he spent the day showing me around his home town. He was one of those people that make travelling so wonderful. Yet I can't remember his name.
