From a young age I was immersed in the world of travel. Born in England and growing up in Australia, with Kiwi parents, I would spend most of my time travelling with family or moving from country to country, which left me with going to about eight different schools. I was never fully in love with travel, even though I had been so engrossed in it as a child and it wasn't until the age of fifteen when my curiosity for exploring the world really sparked and I would spend hours looking through photos of places I wanted to visit.
In my final year of school after many years of wanderlust, I decided I wanted to go on a gap year around Asia. After I graduated school my plans to go travel just didn't seem 'right', so instead I switched my plans of backpacking for university classrooms. I lasted all of three weeks in uni before scrapping that idea and dropping out.
A week after I turned eighteen I switched out my life in Brisbane, Australia and hopped on a plane to England. I spent what little money I had on travel while working whenever I could at a cafe and by my nineteenth birthday I had created a pretty substantial list of places I had visited and I was falling more and more in love with photography. She Travelled the World was born in 2017, which gave me an excuse to travel further and more frequently. At first I was completely clueless when it came to the online world and more importantly, creating a business. Slowly, my skills began to grow and She Travelled the World began to expand, something I couldn't be more thankful for.
44 countries later and countless early mornings, overnight buses, 2 minute noodles and missed flights, this blog has been my way of showcasing my love for exploring. Over the past few years my life has evolved into the dreamy ideals I had wanted when I was in school and I am so grateful for the endless adventures which have flooded each day. Blogging has been one of the most rewarding experiences I've had the pleasure of undertaking and I encourage everyone and anyone to pursue their love because the results are so worthwhile.
