Hi! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Megan, and I live in Sydney where I’m a marketer by day and usually researching my next trip, near or far, by night. I love equally the mountains and markets of far flung places, and looking out from my bedroom window at home in Sydney at the bridge and the traffic and the sparkling harbour.
A few years ago, in May 2010, after years studying for two degrees, I left to travel round the world alone, and indefinitely.
That trip spanned almost 18 months and 28 countries. It took me from 423m below sea level to 5,700m above where I’ve ridden donkeys, hiked in thin air, studied yoga and Spanish and eaten things I probably shouldn’t have.
Arriving in Hong Kong on a midnight flight from Jordan, I spent the next several months exploring the continent I hold dearest to my heart, Asia. My travels took me through China; in a Russian minivan in Mongolia; the wilds and high passes of western Tibet; Nepal; crazy, chaotic and colourful India and finally, to Southeast Asia. After a brief break with friends and family in Sydney, I travelled across Latin America, from Guatemala down to Argentina, from where I took a Qantas flight home.
I was bitten by 1 donkey and 1 dog and received 1 headbutt from a cow, visited 3 hospitals in 3 countries and took countless photographs.
