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.

During my three-week trip in Serbia I kept track of my expenses and put together this guide of the cost of accommodation, food, transport and sightseeing.
I 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.
I logged into my CouchSurfing account a few weeks ago and realised I’d been a member for nearly three years. This project has given me so much: great experiences, memories and friends. It’s also taught me a thing or two.
For weeks people have been asking how I feel about being in Vancouver. For a while, my answer (when I had one) wasn’t very positive. Returning to “real life” was hard, and it took me a while to accept it.
Did you make a resolution to travel more in 2014? Smashing! Here’s some advice to get you on your way.
If I leave a country with just my memories and photos, that’s fine with me. This isn’t a “best of” collection. Some of these photos aren’t that great. But they are my favourite images from 2013.

Posted on December 28, 2013 | 6 CommentsI've spent the last five months travelling. I've visited 11 countries. Seen some incredible things. Met some amazing people. Sounds like a dream right? But that's not always the case. Sometimes life on the road is hard. Really hard. So why doesn't anyone talk about it?
