What is your favourite travel experience or story?

One of my favourite travel experiences was visiting Waiheke Island off the coast of Auckland in New Zealand. After weeks of constant travel from place to place, slowing down on this beautiful island, checking out a local vineyard and sipping wine on the patio with no one else there was a great way to close out a trip.

What's your travel style?

It depends who I’m traveling with, but when I’m solo, it’s often budget and nature vibes all the way. I’m an outdoorsy person and that’s only got stronger as I’ve traveled. Cities are great for a couple of days, but give me a cheap Airbnb or hostel near a national park or beach anyday.

How do you decide which places to visit?

I start with either blogs or using the search everywhere feature on Skyscanner to see where I can visit on a budget. From there, I normally jump on Airbnb or Hostelworld to see if accommodation is available/cheap and choose based on that. For bigger trips, I’m a huge planner. I print off maps, make lists, work out logistics – the whole nine yards.

What is your #1 travel tip?

Learn how to properly pack a carry on. Less and less airlines are including hold luggage – even on long haul flights – so being able to jam a ton of stuff into a small rucksack is a huge money saver,

What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?

Only three?! I definitely want to have a full couple of weeks hiking around Utah and the midwest of the US. Visit (and drink my way around) Chilean wine country. Eat my way around Oaxaca, Mexico.

Window seat or aisle?

Window for short-haul, aisle for long-haul.
