About you

Originally from NYC, Lindsay moved to Australia a year and a half ago in search of new adventures Down Under! In her free time, she enjoys travelling, photography, yoga/pilates, and salsa dancing.

Why do you travel and look for adventures?

I love exploring new places (especially secret beaches and hiking trails), food, and cultures – and absolutely love all the people I get to meet along the way!

What kind of adventures do you look for when you travel?

Anything outdoors!

What’s your go-to travel hack?

My favourite plan is to have no set plan at all – usually just wander by foot in a new place and go wherever I’m drawn to. It always leads to the most unexpected experiences and adventures.

Got any gear you can’t travel without?

My camera and a good read!

What destination are you eager to go back to?

Dying to get back home and see my family after so long! But also had exciting trips planned to New Zealand, The Philippines, and Malaysia that were unfortunately cancelled this year – will have to make it once travel restrictions lift (hopefully soon!).

How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?

This can be tricky when travelling solo – but it’s always important to let others know where you are or where you are planning to go so they can track your whereabouts if anything were to go wrong.

What’s the best way to experience a destination like a local?

Starting with the local food of course! I always try to meet locals when in a new place as well to get a feel for what living there is like, or even just good local recs!

What’s your favourite word in another language?

This is such a hard question, I have so many! “Ikigai” is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being” and is meant to represent finding happiness, purpose, and meaning in everyday life. And also “Il Dolce Far Niente” which is essentially the Italian art of doing nothing.

When and where are you next travelling?

Somewhere in Australia while international travel bans are still in place – probably a trip up the coast to Queensland!
