First of all, thank you for taking the time to read my blog! My name is Jessie and I’m a university student from Australia. I’ve been constantly told that I’m a 20-something with the mind of a grandma, whether by the manager of a Cambodian orphanage I volunteered at as an English and music teacher, or by my host mum in Italy when I lived there as an au pair. Yep, everything I do and love seem to be things that people who were at least in their 30s seem to love, but I think it just gives me a huge advantage in being able to view every experience in a fresh young perspective. Hence the name young-old-traveller seemed perfect!
I have been lucky enough to spend my childhood years in Taiwan and Australia, with lots of short travel trips here and there, but there was always something missing whenever I travelled with my family- a culture immersion. It wasn’t until I travelled by myself to Cambodia after I finished high school that I truly found myself immersed in a foreign culture. I have since decided to devote my travelling style to a long-term one (well… as long as my uni breaks will allow me to), where I can fully understand and appreciate new places, hence my incentive to starting this blog. I can’t wait to travel around the world to experience different cultures, and hopefully in that process I can inspire you to do the same, no matter how young or old you are! 🙂
Got a question? Comment? Suggestion? I’d love to hear from you- even if it’s simply saying hi!
