Kia Ora!

I’m Sarah, originally from New Zealand but currently residing in Abu Dhabi working as a teacher at a local school.

My passion for traveling all started with a stint working at a summer camp in America.  The exposure to meeting new people, experiencing new cultures, and trying new foods, ignited a fire in me and I haven’t stopped traveling since!

Over the past nine years I have been working as a teacher and nanny in England, Austria, Germany and now the United Arab Emirates. During this time I have spent every free moment exploring and traveling the world and having travelled to over 50 countries my ‘list’ seems to be never ending – in fact every time I travel I seem to add at least 10 more places to my list (first world problems, I know!)

When away on adventures I love to fit the most into my time away, experience new food, encounter something daring or adventurous, try out the local nightlife, and if I can manage to fit in a hike that’s an added bonus!  I have experienced every type of travel and I love it all – with that said though, I won’t be rushing out to spend seven weeks living in a tent again anytime soon!

A few of my interests aside from travelling are hiking, netball, dragon boats, reading, cooking, trying new restaurants, aimlessly checking Facebook, and constantly talking (the latter two might be habits).

A common question I encounter is what is your favourite place? I find this question impossible to answer – I have loved every adventure and trip I’ve been on and I can’t wait to share these adventures with you!

If you’ve ever taken a trip to Italy, you’ve probably experienced the labyrinthine magic of Venice, the historical mystique of Rome, the sheer beauty of the lakes or maybe just the amazing shopping in Milan. The country is stunning, filled with sights and experiences…

The Wandering Brit Tags Along with the Kiwis

Marhaba, Ciao, G’day, Yiasou! I thought it fitting to introduce myself through the languages of the countries I’ve lived and worked in (although sadly ‘hi’ is probably the only word I can remember from some of them). I’m Joanne, a northern Brit with Greek…

Reviewing the Kathmandu XT driFILL Down Jacket

Nothing puts a damper on being out in the great outdoors like being ill-prepared. With frozen hands and chilly toes, it’s hard to think of anything but heading back inside to warm up. With a trip to Iceland and Norway planned for the middle of their winter,…
