About Me

I’m Bec! I’m a 26-year-old from Sydney, Australia. I am a trained Primary School Teacher who has been teaching for 5 years! I am also a wife to my amazing husband Jonathan, a trained musician, a cat lover, someone who enjoys learning foreign languages and a very passionate world traveller.

My Travel Story

I started travelling at the age of 12; my first ever overseas trip was across the ditch to beautiful New Zealand with my family where I first caught the travel bug. The idea of going on a plane and three hours later arriving in a completely different place sounded fun and exciting!

Up until the age of 20, I had taken other small overseas trips to wonderful places including New Zealand (again) with my bestie, New Caledonia on a school French-learning trip and an unforgettable university trip to Fiji where we taught in the local primary schools.

With a few brand new passport stamps, with many more new adventures and stories yet to unfold, I was interested and encouraged to explore even more what the world had to offer.

It wasn’t until my final year of my teaching degree where I embarked upon another crazy adventure and went to Africa, where I travelled across six countries including Mozambique, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana and South Africa on an overland camping adventure!

Once I started teaching in Sydney schools, I worked for a year, saved up every cent I could and booked my biggest overseas trip to date where I spent 4.5 months travelling around the world visiting 20 countries spanning over two continents. An extended trip overseas was something I always wanted to do, and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life!

Come On the Adventure With Me!

At the moment I am living in Sydney with my husband, and we plan to WORK, SAVE and TRAVEL as much as possible!

If you are someone who LOVES their job and wants to find more time to travel the world, this travel blog is for YOU and I encourage you to come on the adventure with me!

It is my ultimate goal to show you that you CAN HAVE BOTH, and still make travelling a priority!

    Hi! Thank you so much for this “About”, you just gave me hope for doing two things I love. I just finished my master degree in preschool education and I was worried about what could I do to teach and travel at the same time. My boyfriend found your blog and shared it with me, we’re doing an intrarrail in our country, Portugal, this summer and an interrail around Europe in september.
    I’m excited to hear about trips.

      Hi Inês! As a teacher, I use my school holidays to travel overseas (from Sydney, Australia), and I use my weekends and long weekends to travel within my home country as well! You can definitely have the best of both worlds! I love being a teacher and I also love to travel with my husband as well! Good luck with your new career in preschool education! Teaching is the best job in the world! I have never been to Portugal before! (and have always wanted to go!).

    Hi Bec,

    Thanks for your lovely website. It makes me very happy to read that there are people who are proud to be an Aussie and love our wonderful country just as much as I do.
