I love to travel the world and have exciting new experiences. I grew up in a small town in New Zealand and was inspired to travel by my parents. I remember reading their travel journal as a child and wanting the adventure for myself. After losing my mum in 2009 I realised life is too short to wait for opportunities. So in 2010 aged 22 I took on my first solo backpacking trip through Europe. I have since been to 41 countries across Europe, Asia, North, Central, South America, Africa and Oceania.
