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.

Visiting a place like Mossman Gorge is a fascinating look at what nature gets up to when we humans don’t interfere. Part of the Daintree National Park and Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, the rainforest is even more spectacular in the wet.
The Aboriginal people of Australia have used painting and drawing to record centuries of history, culture and traditions. With some of the works thought to be 40,000 years old, they are the artists behind the world’s oldest galleries. The Quinkan Galleries are some of the best examples of Indigenous rock art in the country.
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.

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.
