Hiking the Inca Trail with The Aussie Flashpacker | The Nomad Files

Today on the Nomad Files it is my pleasure to introduce to you a fellow Australian travel blogger who has left our shores for cloudy England. Simone has seen a lot of our world and I’m excited to hear what she has in store for us today.

Welcome to The Nomad Files Simone, tell me, when did you discover that you were a travel fiend and what was the influencing factor?

Simone, The Aussie Flashpacker

I was lucky enough to have parents who took us on a lot of holidays when we were growing up! We spent our school holidays on the coast and exploring Australia as a family. Once we were old enough to appreciate it they began taking us to New Zealand for winter holidays that were full of snow, adventure and fun. My favourite was our first trip to New Zealand when we hired a campervan and drove around the whole South Island.

I think the travel bug really began for me though when I was 17 and went on a school Ancient History/Art trip to Italy! I absolutely loved every second of this trip and have been back to Italy three times since and it is still one of my favourite places in the world. Wanderlust runs deep through my veins and I really have my parents to thank for that for taking us on so many adventures throughout our childhood & for awakening my restless spirit! Continue Reading

Easter Island with Megan Jerrard | The Nomad Files

Today on the Nomad Files we are joined Megan Jerrard of Mapping Megan. Megan was actually one of the first blogs I ever followed when I first joined Twitter and is constant source of inspiration. Megan is seen by many travel bloggers as an industry leader so it is an honour to have the chance to interview her. It also helps that I love hearing the stories from fellow Aussies, so please welcome Megan.

Hi Megan, so when did you discover that you were a travel fiend and what was the influencing factor?

I discovered I was a travel fiend in 2007 when I took off on a 12 month Gap Year to the UK inbetween high school and university. I worked as a boarding school assistant and had 17 weeks break to discover and explore the whole of Europe.

The influencing factors for me were adventure, excitement and the escape of monotony. I realized seeing the world in living colour far surpassed settling for watching it on a television screen. This trip made me realize that I wanted to actually feel, taste and experience the world instead of settling for the version I was reading in books.
