I live for travel and love sharing my best tips and tricks. I have lived in New York, London and Australia. I used to think travel wasn't for people like me, but I was so wrong! Travel is a magical opportunity that opens up the world (quite literally), broadens your horizons and enhances you as a human.

I'm also an entrepreneur and travel blog writer, I enjoy back backing, food, cultures and the thrill of moving abroad.
