Hi, Hola, Jambo, Bonjour, Namaste,

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-shaking 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 never looked back. I made a dramatic career change and became a travel consultant who designs other’s dream holidays every day.

As of 2019, I have travelled to 21 countries and made countless memories. I’ve been nearly trampled by elephants during a nap, road-tripped to Vegas in a Mustang and found myself singing ‘Single Ladies’ with a corrupt police captain in Zanzibar. I prefer to escape the bustling cities of the worlds and delve deeper into local cultural experiences and get back to nature.

I’m a sucker for a selfie, eating nutella out of the jar and watching the Lion King. I have a not-so-secret love affair with food and my dog, Sophie … the most adorable Alaskan Malamute in the world!

A blog was born:

The Roaming Street is a play on words around 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 ditching Schoolies to go to Disneyworld with my mum… to planning a round-the-world trip with my hunky boyfriend. I’m a budget traveller bringing you my accounts of less-frequented destinations. I tend to 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!
