Hi! Welcome to The Roaming Street, the travel blog that’s all about a 20-something year old Aussie girl exploring different corners of the globe. My name’s Kirstin and by the age of 18, I had well and truly caught the travel bug. As much as I adore my home in Australian suburbia, I don’t cope well with the conventional 9-5 way of life and am constantly planning my next worldly escape.
A little bit about me:
After a few life-altering tragedies and finishing my Bachelor’s degree in Science, I quit my job, sub-let my apartment and headed for Africa! After fulfilling my life-long dream of volunteering and overlanding through Africa I didn’t look back. I made a dramatic career change and became a travel consultant who designs other’s dream holidays every day.
As of 2017, I have travelled to 16 countries and made countless memories. I’ve been nearly trampled by elephants during a nap, road-tripped to Vegas for my birthday and found myself singing ‘Single Ladies’ with a corrupt police captain in Zanzibar. I much prefer to get away from bustling cities and delve into local cultural experiences ‘off the beaten track’.
I’m a sucker for a selfie, street-food, eating nutella out of the jar and watching the Lion King whether I’m sick, tired or bored. I’m a big kid when it comes to anything remotely resembling bubbles, fairy lights or rainbows and I have the most adorable Alaskan malamute in the world named Sophie.
A blog was born:
The Roaming Street is a play on words of my surname and the irony of a Street being such a static place in this big, wide world. This blog is my space to honestly share my travel experiences, from skipping schoolies to go to Disneyworld with my mum… to attempting a world-trip with my hunky boyfriend. I’m a budget traveller bringing you my accounts of less-frequented destinations. I ramble… a lot! My writing style is often less than coherent, but what I lack in coherency, I make up for in content.
Whether you are living vicariously through my adventures, planning your next holiday or just a travel enthusiast who loves a good story, this is the right place for you! I invite you to explore with me, and thank you in advance for following my adventures. I also love to extend my services as a travel consultant to my readers so please get in contact for help with a tailor-made itinerary for your next trip!
