About Me



Sydney, Australia ~ Currently: Home

The more you explore the world, the more chances you give to explore yourself. You feel the sweetness of your solitude; you find that you are all that you need. You find yourself whole; so whole, that everything else - everyone else - is just a bonus.



Hi! I'm Claire. I'm 23 years old from Brisbane, Australia. To say I have the travel bug is putting it lightly... In the last 3 years, I've travelled to 24 countries (all self-funded) so I've got plenty of budget backpacking tips to share. I'm currently on my biggest adventure yet - my gap year (and-a-half!) around-the-world working holiday. 

Ever since my first trip to New Zealand in 2015 I've been hooked on travelling. At the end of 2017, I finished my marketing degree but felt the urge to see as much of the world as possible before committing to a full-time job and starting a career. Since then, I've put my skills to use by documenting my 'gap year-or-two' travels on my blog - so far I've road-tripped the east coast of Australia, solo backpacked the Philippines, explored NYC, worked at a summer camp in Ontario, road-tripped the Canadian Rockies, lived and worked on beautiful Vancouver Island in B.C, spent a week in Cuba, two weeks in Mexico, backpacked through Guatemala, Honduras , Nicaragua and Costa Rica and travelled in Peru and Bolivia and up the west coast of the USA. I'm currently spending a year in Whistler, Canada - but, I'm only just getting started!


I'm super passionate about all things travel, photography and adventure and believe that your budget shouldn't limit your ability to see the world. I can't wait to share my adventures and advice with you!
