Who Are We?

IMG_0905We are two Aussie girls slowly but surely exploring the world. Between us we’ve set foot on 22 different countries in 4 continents. In 2018 we’ll add three more to that list when we look to take on Nepal, India and Sri Lanka over a three month period. We met playing U12 state football when we led our team as captain and vice captain. This year whilst travelling, our paths crossed intentionally and rekindled a friendship that had laid dormant for 5 years. Here is a little bit more about each of us:

Johanna:

Ciao, I’m now 19 and have a little more experience but not much more wisdom! Australia is still my home but I am now based out of Hamburg! Towards the end of this year I will be heading over to Indonesia to attend a wedding and will be traveling around South-East Asia for a couple of months before meeting up (FINALLY!) with Hayley! My future is a little clearer, I hope to start University in Australia at the beginning of 2019 but travel as much as I can between now and then and on breaks! But as anyone who has traveled knows, plans can certainly change. Let’s see what the new year brings us and always, Happy Travels from Wakilele!

Hayley:

Heya! I’m 19 years old and have grown up in a small town called Katherine in the Northern Territory of Australia. I now reside in Brisbane on the east coast of Australia and study Science/Law at the University of Queensland. In 2017 I travelled solo trip throughout Europe as far east as Hungary and as far north as Sweden and Iceland. Prior to this the only countries I had been to outside of Australia were Turkey and Vietnam. I’ll add more adventures to the scrapbook when I’m finally reunited with Johanna to take on India/Sri Lanka and Nepal!

I have always loved writing and storytelling, so I felt a blog would be a great pass time for myself. However like many people, I was always held back by the fear that no one really cares what you have to say, and fair enough, why should they. I know that I’m no expert and I’ve got so much more to learn, nevertheless, during my Euro trip I met many other solo travellers beginning their journeys, or people that had never considered going it alone, and suddenly I was bombarded with questions – people wanting advice, recommendations, wanting my opinions and asking about my experience. That is when it occurred to me that I have actually learnt many things and I’ve got a lot to offer. So here I am a short time later, a co-author of travel blog, set up in a Copenhagen hostel room with a name decided whilst eating Chinese food on a train platform in Hamburg.
