“I believe that life is meant to be an adventure. No matter who you are, where you come from or what job you do. Living your life is the biggest adventure you will ever go on. I always knew my life wasn’t meant to be lived in one place and I’ve made travel a sure part of my reality. Travel makes me feel alive as does my job as a NICU nurse which so far I’ve taken with me on my adventures to New Zealand and Australia”.
I founded this blog to provide travel tips and help others to live out their own dreams of travelling the globe. There’s a misconception with travel that is to be for just one week a year and that ‘everyday’ people can’t live a life of travel. Well, that’s utter C***! in my opinion.
So far I’ve travelled and carried on my career as a travel nurse in three countries, the UK, Australia and New Zealand and I’m making my way around the world! No matter who you are, what your occupation you too can have a life filled with travel and adventure. I made travel a part of reality and now I’m sharing all my tips and tricks hoping to inspire others in taking the leap into travel.
If you’re not a nurse then I salute you 😉 but there’s still a place for you here at Alicia Overseas thanks to my raging wanderlust, I’ve got endless amounts of travel tips and destination guides for you too!
I do run this blog as a solo warrior but I’m dragging my partner David around the world with me too. So, if you hear me referring to ‘we’ or ‘us’ then you know I’m not completely crackers just yet!
My blogging journey, I actually have no idea where to start with this one but I feel like I’ve been on a rollercoaster already! I started this blog back in June 2018 with the idea to update my family and friends on our journey. I also thought it would be cool to share some of my travel tips. When I first started I had no idea that people actually made a living out of blogging and used their love for travel to create more of a business!
The thought created a surge of excitement as I thought, why can’t that be me? But I had no idea what work blogging professionally actually meant! The amount of learning involved, networking, basically building an empire up from scratch is hard work! So I ummed and ahhed for a while deciding what I really wanted to blog about, changed my mind and theme about one million times, knew nothing about SEO and had no sense of branding what so ever!
It’s only since January 2019 that I’ve started taking the steps to invest in myself and my blog! I love this little space that I’ve created to let my creativity thrive and share my travel journey. I’ve got big plans for this little blog and can’t wait to see where my blogging journey takes me. I’ve still got a long way to go but I’m learning from other bloggers, learning SEO and all the tips and tricks to kickstart my blogging career. So, if you know any resources that would be useful then please let me know in the comments or send me an email!
As a newbie to the travel world, I want to make life easier for everyone who is just getting started in the online world. Therefore I’m going to be creating travel guides for newbie travellers based on places I’ve been! You’ll find plenty of tips on Things To Do and Free Travel Tips for the destinations I’ve visited too!
I just want to say how grateful I am for your support and hope you continue following me along on my journey around the world!
