Family vacations offered me a feel for different cultures and ignited a passion for travel at a young age.
The first time I visited Australia was on a college exchange when I attended the University of Wollongong where I continued my studies in communications. Right away I fell in love with the laid-back atmosphere and the experiences that went along with it.
After completing my six-month semester I ventured further up the east coast of Australia before heading over to New Zealand to self-drive through the many mountain ranges and rolling green hills. The sense of adventure through New Zealand is one of a kind, making the country one of my favorite destinations I’ve explored thus far.
I was amazed by how diverse Australia and New Zealand’s landscapes were and how each state and territory has its own character. One day you can be snorkeling on the reef and the next hiking a glacier. I’m excited to continue sharing my love of both Australia and New Zealand with people who are looking to experience a new adventure.

Q&A with Haley
What’s the best local dish you’ve tried?
Oysters in Tasmania. You can find oyster shacks lining the coast of Tasmania, offering some of the freshest seafood in a casual but beautiful setting.
What's your most vivid travel moment?
On my first game drive while on safari in Tanzania, the sun was rising and I saw wildlife that until that point I had only seen in photos. A pride of lions were lounging under a tree and we sat and watched the cubs play which was just so cool.
Where would you love to travel to next?
Next on my list would be Japan. Between the food, culture and scenery, this destination is extremely intriguing and I would love to go.
