Hey there, I’m Freya!
An environmental scientist by trade and traveller by choice, there are few things I love more than an afternoon spent in nature, twiddling my toes in the sand, tasting the flavours of the world and curling up with a steaming cup of Earl Grey.
Growing up, travel was always a huge part of my life, one that took me to the crumbling glaciers of Patagonia, the frenetic streets of Hanoi, through the burnt red Australian outback and within pecking distance of a wild ostrich in the African savannah.
It was perhaps inevitable then that before long I would set off to take the first tentative steps of my very own adventure.
As a starry-eyed 21-year-old with an insatiable appetite to see the world, I jetted off to South-East Asia to figure out what this whole backpacking thing was all about.
