Current location? Auckland, New Zealand
My first destination in 2018 was ROMANIA, which remains one of my favourite countries.

In May, I began my solo adventure in Tokyo, JAPAN before heading off to solo hike the Kumano Kodo, an ancient pilgrimage trail, and explore the lesser-known island of Kyushu.
After spending a weekend in Seoul, SOUTH KOREA, next up I began backpacking through Southeast Asia. I visited MALAYSIA, VIETNAM, LAOS and THAILAND before catching a flight to SINGAPORE.
I headed to Flores and Bali in INDONESIA and SRI LANKA before eventually landing in Melbourne, AUSTRALIA, where I began a one-year working holiday visa in October 2018.
I continued to work in Melbourne until April when I went back to explore more of Indonesia – this time I concentrated on exploring JAVA which is possibly my favourite overall trip within Asia!
In May 2019, I moved to SYDNEY to continue my working holiday visa where I remained till October 2019.
I spent the rest of the year seeing friends in WESTERN EUROPE and solo backpacking around THE BALKANS, visiting cities including Sarajevo, Ohrid, and Pristina before road-tripping around Montenegro.
After extending my stops in Chiang Mai and staying with friends in Sydney for a few weeks each, I ended up arriving in NEW ZEALAND just six days before the border closed. I have remained in Auckland since then.
