For my first blog post I thought it would be best to introduce myself and give a quick breakdown of my journey so far and my up and coming plans.
I’m Holly Wigmore – a 21-year-old from Southampton, England currently on a year Working Holiday Visa in Australia. I arrived in Sydney in June 2016 with my boyfriend Sam and 9 months later we’re back in Sydney with new memories and some more knowledge on travelling Australia. In the next couple of months, we have plans to see Melbourne, see more of Sydney and travel home via Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
In the time that we’ve been out here we have been all along the East Coast; traveling from Sydney to Cairns on the Greyhound then flying to Brisbane and hiring a Campervan with my parents, driving back up to Cairns before boarding a return flight to Sydney. Needless to say, we have seen all the best bits along Australia’s East Coast.
I intend to use this blog as a way of reminding myself of our journey so far, telling stories of the places we’ve been lucky enough to see and informing anyone in a similar situation wherever I can.
As well as writing about my time here I have tried (and occasionally succeeded) in capturing the beauty of this vast country. I’m always trying to improve my camera skills and find new places to photograph and will be updating my gallery with new material regularly.
I’ll be aiming to write a new blog post at least once a week but in the meantime please give me any feedback on my website so far.
Thanks for reading if you got this far!
