My 20s pretty much consisted of me moving around from one city to the next and doing whatever job I could to fund my travel addiction. So far my timeline looks like this: Townsville – Brisbane – Vancouver – Melbourne – Vancouver – Melbourne – Townsville. I know, I’m also exhausted just looking at it 🤣. I’ve also worked on a food truck, as a barista, at major arenas and stadiums in both Australia and Canada, and even at a Christmas Market!
Now I’m 30, still travelling as much as possible and living back in my hometown of Townsville.
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 (update: nothing’s changed). So I combined my two loves and Hayley on Holiday was born. I have been travelling solo since I was 18 (12 years and counting) and I am a big advocate. If I can travel the world solo and on a budget, I believe anyone can.
Why? Well, I’m introverted, I worry constantly about not meeting society’s expectations of what my life should look like and I am so uncoordinated my old coworker created the #HalesFails hashtag. Yep, life goals right there.
