Launched in 2016 as a community for avid globetrotters, adventurers travelling for the first time, and aspiring wanderlusters, Travelscriber is a growing collective of culturally aware explorers from around the world.
Where are you from?
At the moment, I'm living in hometown, Newcastle, Australia. My pieces about the area are a great place to start if you want to know more about where I am!
Alternatively, are you searching for hints and tips about travelling? Look no further than here!
Where have I seen your name before?
Having been writing for a while, I’ve got quite a few posts dotted around both online and print publications. I first began when I was still at school, composing for the St Vincent de Paul chapter at St Francis Xavier’s College, Hamilton. This was a charity focused on assisting the less fortunate in the local community, and I figured I should use my skills to do all I could to help.
I started publishing online at Yak, an online and print magazine for The University of Newcastle. As soon as people hear “student magazine”, they think bake sales and hipster culture. Which I’m sure there was some of that involved in some student-related activities … but not all.
I was more concerned with helping people - making sure they knew about the resources they had access to, and championing patience and understanding. This has definitely influenced my more recent activity, writing for lipmag, an Australian feminist publication.
Which brings me to Travelscriber. This is a place where I aim to inspire learning about other cultures and practices. While I wouldn’t say this is strictly a feminist-featured blog, I am aware that my desire to celebrate everyone’s uniqueness and inherent value may permeate my writing.
Where have you been?
I want to share what I know about the places I’ve been - which so far encompasses Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, England, Spain, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Monaco and Japan. And, let’s not forget Australia - my home country, where Newcastle is my home town.
But why am I so passionate about travel? While I like seeing strange sites and enjoying unusual food, the real treasure is being able to experience different languages and cultures. It reveals so much about the people who live in that particular country, and is such a huge learning, and human, experience. Now, I want to share my love of being in another, strange place to anyone who visits this blog - and to make it as easy as possible for people to do it!
