I believe in following your dreams and for me right now that’s quitting my job and packing up my comfortable life in Sydney to travel around the world (again!).
Yep, it’s not my first time to take off like this. In my 20s travel was a priority and I quit 4 jobs to travel, sometimes for months at a time. But at 36 it’s a little bit more of a serious proposition and it’s definitely not been an easy decision.
For the last 6 years I’ve worked hard and established a good career. Being a born and bred Sydney girl my family (including a gorgeous nephew and an adorable niece) and close friends are here and Sydney is a wonderful place to live.
But despite all that I’ve been feeling more and more restless, and the idea of travelling for months on end again has become overwhelming.
Travel and adventure have always been my passion so I’ve decided to follow my heart and make my dream a reality.
So with only a rough plan to follow the Silk Road from China through Central Asia on to Europe, and then to South America I’m off on my biggest adventure yet.
It’s a huge undertaking as I’m planning to travel solo for the majority of the time. But I’m sure my past travels have prepared me for this trip.
You might be wondering where those past travels have taken me. Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to travel to more than 50 countries. I’ve lived and worked in the ultimate ski resort, Whistler Canada and in super cool London. I’ve also backpacked solo through Eastern Europe for five months and travelled through Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt (sometimes on my own).
As an Aussie I’ve of course been to Bali and South East Asia, and one my all time favourite trips was to the island paradise of Cuba.
I created this blog to share my love of travel and to hopefully provide some inspiration to others who dream of travelling. I’m also hoping I’ll be able to show that travelling independently and as a solo female is possible*, even in some more unusual and exotic locations.
So join me on my adventures!
