Hello there and welcome to Hayley on Holiday — I am so glad you stopped by! My name is Hayley and I am a part-time writer/blogger and part-time hospitality worker. I am an Australian expat currently living in Vancouver, Canada… for the second time. Turns out I love this city. A LOT.
My twenties have pretty much consisted of me moving around from one city to the next and doing whatever job I can that funds my travel addiction. So far I have moved from my home in Townsville to Brisbane, Vancouver, Melbourne and then back to Vancouver. I know, nomad much? It’s hard to keep up, seriously. I’ve also worked in retail, hospitality and administration. Some job highlights: an Aussie food truck in Vancouver; a German Christmas Market in Vancouver; and two sports stadiums in two different countries.
I started this blog after I graduated with a Bachelor of Journalism and realised it is really hard to find a full-time writing job. So I combined my two loves and here we are. I have been travelling solo since I was 18 (9 years and counting), and I am a big advocate. If I can travel the world solo and a budget, I believe anyone can. I am introverted, I worry constantly about not meeting society’s expectations of what my life should look like, and I am so uncoordinated my old co-worker created the #HalesFails hashtag. Yep, life goals right there.
Hayley on Holiday covers topics such as solo travel, budget travel and expat life. You will find weekly life updates and pretty photos because I only realised a couple of years ago how much I love photography and now my camera(s) are surgically attached to me.
