Hi, I’m Liz, a kiwi travel blogger.
I started this blog a couple years ago after I quit my job in New Zealand, packed my life into a suitcase and set off on my big OE (kiwi slang for Overseas Experience).
My OE was pretty full-on…I planned the first month prior to leaving and worked out the rest along the way, this included
- Touring through Europe with Contiki
- Sailing in Croatia
- Working at Camp Europe
- Multiple stints with WorkAway
- Working as an au pair
After 5 months I ended up in Madrid, Spain, where I landed a job teaching English in a primary school. This was amazing as I was earning a steady wage, rented a room in the heart of the city and lived a magical madrileño life for 2 years, where I travelled often throughout Spain and Europe.
Now, I’m back home in New Zealand, still travelling as much as I can, while also holding down a full-time job and working on my career which I love. Who said you have to be a full-time traveller in order to have a travel blog?
Hmmm, what else… cats are the best, I love jamon, I prefer warm climates, I love roller coasters, I don’t really like flying, I hate bad table manners, I never chew gum for longer than 10 minutes and I don’t have a strong kiwi accent except when I say the words; bed, pet or did.
