I’m a 24 year old solo traveller, scuba diver and engineer from Brisbane, Australia.
I was the slow kid in class when it came to travelling. Everyone around me seemed to be heading off on big, exciting trips and I was often stuck working my arse off in some part of rural Australia.
Other than a few weeks in New Zealand (hardly overseas for an Aussie!), my travel experience was pretty limited. It was not until I was 23 that I went on my first proper overseas trip, where after working FIFO for two and a half years I decided to use one of my weeks off for a trip to Vietnam. That one week exposed me to vastly different cultures, food and people; I was instantly hooked!
