Tell us about you
I am originally from Malta and spent 2 and a half years living and working in Switzerland before moving to Australia. I am hopelessly addicted to travelling, writing, blogging and taking photos. I love randomness as it’s what makes life exciting.
Favourite travel destination and why
Definitely Vietnam. I spent 2 months travelling from North to South and was fascinated by the changing landscape but always lovely people, and of course, the amazing cuisine. I still haven’t seen everything and would love to go back for more.
How many countries have you visited?
It’s not about how many countries one has visited, it's about how one visits them.
Most recent adventure
Jet boating and helicopter-riding in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Best travel memory
Soaking in the wonderfully hot waters of an outdoor thermal bath in Budapest – under the stars, in -7 degrees.
Best travel tips
Let everyone travel the way they want to and don’t be judgmental. Always pre-book accommodation as it’s not fun wasting time lugging your backpack from one place to another. Always have a plan but be ready to be spontaneous is something great comes your way.
Favourite food experience
Korean barbeque with locals in Seoul one cold February night.
Any advice for people considering embarking on the trip of a lifetime
Travel is a life-long endeavour - there is no hurry. You can’t and won’t see everything in one trip, but by being selective and travelling slowly, you can create a meaningful connection with a place, its people and culture.
Which country is next on your list to experience and why
Japan has been on my wish list ever since I can remember. I just stopped making excuses as to why I couldn’t go and booked my 3 week trip because there are no excuses not to fulfil a life-long dream.
