Hello, Bonjour, G’day, مرحبا, Hola, Bok, Hei, Ciao, Kia Ora!

Welcome to my Travel Blog!

My name is Sarah, I currently live in the little country of New Zealand and I’m 23 years old.
I’m very much a girlie girl. I love animals, food, going to the gym and being social.
I once worked in the Beauty Therapy industry, worked as a Nanny in my hometown and my most recent job – working at a Radio Station doing Reception work/dealing with prizes/having after work drinks 😉

I started up this blog specifically for my Round The World Trip adventure! (RTW)
In November of 2014, I won an amazing trip through a Travel Company for all my flights to be paid for around the world. I swear I never win anything so I was super excited about winning this prize.

Straight away I began to plan where I wanted to go, what I wanted to see, how long I wanted to go for.
On my list there was South East Asia, Europe, America, Spain! Until eventually I had to be realistic and plan out exactly what I could afford. Even though my flights were paid for, it’s everything else that starts to add up. I’ve already spend over NZD$10,000 on this trip and I haven’t even left New Zealand yet!

Travelling has always been a dream of mine. It’s funny, because before I even entered the competition I was planning an OE but had nothing set in stone. I thought it’d take me years to save so I’d sit at home and write down information about places around the world, cities I wanted to visit and where I could possibly work if I decided to live overseas. And then I won this prize!
I think it was a meant-to-be thing. Maybe the stars above knew how much I wanted to do something like this. It really pushed me along to go ahead and do it without pondering and dreaming about it.

Finally I’ve decided on my destinations – which I’ll write in the next post.
I just thought I’d introduce myself and explain what my blog is about! (I currently have a personal blog but thought it’d be nice to have JUST a travel one for anyone else planning an overseas adventure)

  1. How on EARTH have you spent so much money if you have not even left New Zealand yet?! I’m guessing this isn’t a budget backpacking trip you are doing!! I spent about 3,000 over a 3 month period all over Europe and Asia. Including flights.

      It is budget! Haha, i’m staying in hostels everywhere but Dubai! It’s because I paid for Contiki Tour ($5,050) and a Top deck Tour ($2,000) plus pre paid for all my accommodation + insurance before i’ve left haha

      1. 5,000 dollars for a tour? I hope it takes you to the moon and back. Just kidding 😛 Ah well looks like all your expenses are out of the way so, you shouldn’t need too much once your trip begins! 🙂
