My name is Courtney and I am a 20-something female who was born and raised in a small town in New Zealand.

Growing up with an Australian father, we traveled from NZ to Aussie every year to visit family and explore different parts of Australia. I believe this is where my love of traveling began. In my younger years, we took family vacations to Fiji and Tahiti, and when I was 18 I moved to the United Kingdom for a year and had the chance to travel around Europe.

After studying a semester in Hawaii in 2012, I moved back to Oahu in 2014 to live permanently. Hawaii created and honed my love of adventuring but after three years in the islands, I decided I needed a change of scenery.  Enter: solo trip across America, visiting a number of different states and cities. Excited, but also scared for these new experiences.

My favorite passions are hiking, eating, and exploring so these will be the main themes for my posts. I hope you enjoy them!

Much love,

Courtney xo
