Did someone say travel???
Hi, I’m Olivia a.k.a. Wiwi and I am addicted to travel.
I lose my will to live unless I have a holiday or 2 in the planning – ask me about travel at your own risk, you may or may not walk away with both ears still in tact!
I’m fortunate enough to have visited all 7 continents and 74 countries so far, but my Bucket List keeps growing. The more I travel, the more I want to see, and the more I see, the more I want to see it all over again…
My past travels have been varied – anything from lugging a backpack through South America with a $10-a-day budget and a film pocket camera, to renting a French chateau or exclusive beach house accompanied by my closest friends, a DSLR and a range of lenses.
These days I love to travel slowly – renting comfortable and atmospheric accommodation with my travel posse, and really taking my time in exploring and enjoying my location.
And if there’s wildlife involved, I’m at my peak travel euphoria.
When I’m not traveling, I’m based in the Brisbane, Australia. I work as an analyst for a major travel company so I guess you could say I eat, sleep and breathe travel!
Travel aside, there’s nothing that gives me more joy than inspiring others to go out to explore and see the world through their own eyes. It was trying to capture the beauty of my travels that sparked my interest in photography.
As it says on my home page, the world is too big for one lifetime, and one lens!
I’m always happy to talk travel so feel free to contact me if you’d like more information on any of my travels.
I hope you enjoy my travel and photography musings but most of all, feel inspired to get out there and see the world for yourself!
If you’re wondering why Wiwi? My name changed forever the day my 2 year-old goddaughter couldn’t pronounce my name – Olivia became “Weewee”. Friends and family quickly saw the hilarity of this and it stuck. Since I’m half Kiwi, I went with a slightly different spelling so Wiwi it is.
