Hi, I’m Michelle!
✈ Adventurer. Globetrotter. Wanderlust seeker. Beach addict. Explorer. Story teller.
I’ve travelled and explored 50 countries so far, but who’s counting? (ok, I am!)
I am a Canadian born, Australian based adventure traveller, writer, blogger & photographer.
In between my travels I work as a personal trainer and a mortgage broker. I am passionate about living a healthy and active lifestyle. I’m the type of person who believes life is too short to be lived in one place.
I’ve created this blog to inspire people to live a life you love and never settle for anything less than extraordinary.
Q & A
WHERE IS MY CUTE ACCENT FROM?
I was born in Vancouver, Canada. At 18, I moved to Mexico, and later to France. Then during 3 months of travel around Europe I met who is now my Australian fiancee. After spending some time together in Canada I bought a one way ticket to Melbourne and never looked back.
WHAT’S MY BIGGEST ADVENTURE TO DATE?
Shortly after graduating from high school I bought a one way ticket to Mexico and lived and worked there for a year. While I was there I worked at 2 different hotel resorts doing activities with guests doing things such as beach volleyball, pool aerobics, and entertainment.
WHICH COUNTRY IS MY FAVOURITE?
Mexico. I love everything about it. The food, the language, people, music, beaches everything.
WHO’S BEHIND ALL THESE STUNNING PHOTOS AND VIDEOS?
I can take credit for costumes, art directing, sometimes directing and post production of my travel photos and videos, but the person behind the camera is not a person at all, but rather my trusty tripod. I take the majority of my photos myself with my tripod. I wrote a post all about it here with exactly how I take my own photos.
HOW CAN I AFFORD TO TRAVEL SO MUCH?
When I first started travelling I worked and lived in the destinations I travelled to – Mexico & France. Then when that was no longer allowing me to travel as much as I would have liked I would work, save, quit my job, then travel for a significant amount of time. Currently between my travels I work as a personal trainer in Melbourne and freelance as a mortgage broker while I travel. I try to remember to work smart, not hard!
HOW HAS TRAVELLING INFLUENCED MY LIFE?
Everything good about me, I owe to traveling. I am more mature, relaxed, open-minded and kinder because I got to experience the beauty of this world.
“Where there is nothing, there is the possibility of everything!”
PRETTIEST BEACH I’VE BEEN TO?
Any beach in the Maldives – more gorgeous than photos can capture!
I KNOW I’VE HAD A GOOD DAY WHEN…
I got to see a sunrise and a sunset over an endless horizon. I also crave deep human connection to thrive.
