Hello there and welcome to Hayley on Holiday. I am so glad you stopped by! My name is Hayley Simpson and I am an Aussie currently living in Vancouver for the second time. I work as a freelance travel writer and in hospitality, while also writing this blog.
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 my timeline looks like this: Townsville — Brisbane — Vancouver — Melbourne — Vancouver. But a return to Melbourne is imminent, where I hope to settle for awhile.
I started this blog after I graduated with a Bachelor of Journalism and realised it’s really hard to find a full-time writing job. So I combined my two loves and Hayley on Holiday was born. I have been travelling solo since I was 18 (10 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.
