About Fiona

Hello! My name Fiona and I am a 30 something female that uses my travel experience to help you plan your own dream trips.

I went on my first international trip at 18, moved to Scotland at 21 and never looked back.

In the last 15 years I have travelled to over 35 countries and countless cities including:

New Caledonia
Northern Ireland

The Netherlands
New Zealand

Vatican City

I cannot wait to continue adding to this list ….. visiting every country in the world? Maybe!

Travel is for everybody

I really believe that travel is for anyone who has a dream of getting out and exploring whether it be a new culture or your own backyard.

In order to see the world you don’t need to be rich, experienced, living out of a back, confident or fluent in a hundred different language.

You just need to have a dream, a bucket list and a desire to experience new places and be open to expanding (or stepping out of) your comfort zone.

Travel doesn’t have to be expensive

Unless sleeping in a glass igloo under the stars or perhaps an a treehouse in the arctic forest is on your bucket list, travel doesn’t have to be expensive.

People have the preconceived notion that travel is only for those who earn 6 figures or have a large trust fund waiting for them but this isn’t true.

There are many ways to travel on a budget and to find the best deals on long haul flights to make your travel dreams come true.

When I moved to Scotland I had a one way ticket, $500 (probably £250) and a dream over travelling Europe for a year, little did I know this would turn into 5 years.

We travelled around Europe with a Eurail Pass and a daily budget of $150AUD for four months and came home with so many amazing memories of epic experiences that will last us a life time.

If you have a dream of travelling, you can make it happen and I want to help you!
