I lived all throughout the States growing up, before moving with my family to Brisbane, Australia. I lived there for three years, where I completed high school and took a gap year, and absolutely fell in love with the country. Upon returning to the States, I received my degree in International Studies from Boston College, furthering my passion for travel and learning about different cultures.
My best spots in Australia and New Zealand are the tiny coffee shops that I used to stop at every day, and of course, the pristine beaches where I would spend lazy Saturdays with my family.
I'll never forget when…
My most memorable experience was self-driving down the coast from Sydney to Melbourne. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking - I drove through rolling green hills that met pristine coast line, national parks, quaint farming villages, and sleepy seaside towns. One night I found myself sitting at a small pub with locals in Tilba, NSW, a town with a population of under 400 people. I thought to myself, it's this kind of moment travel is all about.
