My name is Mikki and I’m from Melbourne, Australia.
Since a young age, my dream has always been to see the world and that is exactly what I am doing.
I’ve studied the science of happiness abroad in The Netherlands, lived in the forest in the North of Germany and spent countless nights in different hostels, hotels, Airbnb’s and friends places all around Europe.
I’ve explored my own backyard, Victoria, mostly alone (occasionally with friends and family), spent several months solo with a 13kg backpack exploring Europe and road tripped around Italy, Slovenia and Croatia with my boyfriend. I’ve essentially spent the last 3 years intensely exploring Europe and Australia.
In Australia, I swam with dolphins and seals in the ocean, spotted koalas in their natural habitat, hiked countless hours in bushland and forests and explored the seemingly never-ending coastline and its beaches.
In Europe, I’ve climbed innumerable fortresses, wandered through many castles, explored old towns by foot, hiked in forests and up mountains, swam and rowed in the Adriatic Sea, visited some of Europe’s oldest churches and of course, sampled a vast array of traditional and modern foods.
How and Why I Travel
I am focused on mostly travelling slowly so that I can get a deeper understanding of a place, its people and their way of life. This allows me to pass on more sage advice to help better inform your travels.
This approach to travel is also more budget-friendly and therefore more sustainable for long term travels.
Above all else, I travel with the aims of gaining new experiences and to learn more about the world around me.
What you can expect from my blog
On my blog, I showcase an array of destinations featuring natural wonders, historical old cities and towns and places off the beaten trail. You can expect to see insights into the culture, food, local people and unique experiences.
I share travel guides, itineraries, practical tips, interviews and personal stories to inspire, inform and to help you to plan your travels.
I love photography and videography and I am constantly shooting and working on improving my skills. From me, you will see a combination of travel, street and landscape photography.
Where am I now?
I am currently living on the coast of Montenegro and I’m exploring the Balkans with my boyfriend, Marko. Together we work on my blog and also our YouTube channel.
