Hello there and welcome to Hayley on Holiday. I am so glad you stopped by! My name is Hayley Simpson and I am a freelance travel writer from Australia.
My 20s have pretty much consisted of me moving around from one city to the next and doing whatever job I can to fund my travel addiction. So far my timeline looks like this: Townsville — Brisbane — Vancouver — Melbourne — Vancouver — Melbourne. I know, I’m also exhausted just looking at it. I have also visited 33 countries and have worked as a PA, barista, beer server, bakery assistant…you name it!
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 (11 years and counting) and I am a big advocate. If I can travel the world solo and on 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 coworker created the #HalesFails hashtag. Yep, life goals right there.
