Ellen Around the World
I'm an Aussie girl who's mad about travel! Me and my pack have covered lots of ground over the past few years ....
2003 - 3 months leave to backpack Europe & Canada
2004 - Holidays in Bali, Indonesia
2005 - Holidays in Turkey, Greece & Thailand
2006 - 5 months leave to travel around the world - India, Nepal, to China, across Mongolia and Russia, through Eastern and some of Western Europe. Then home via Canada and the US.
January 2007 - Holidays, North Island, NZ
September, 2007 I decided I needed a break from the corporate grind and resigned from Ford in Australia, to do a year of travel - including some volunteer work in India. The journey was amazing - from South East Asia, I headed across to India. Here I did some volunteer work for Providence, a school in Shillong in the North East corner of India, before some travel around Southern India. For Christmas I flew to Canada for my first ever White Christmas. In January, 2008 I hit Mexico and spent the next 7 months travelling mostly overland through Central and South America. These adventures were probably some of my best-ever and took me to many diverse countries like Cuba, Guatemala, Columbia, Bolivia and Argentina. Here I met some amazing people and learnt lots about different religions and cultures ... time of my life, would be an understatement!
Unfortunately, that journey had to end at some point - so the next one could begin. So, after a few stops in Spain, Portugal and the UK, I've just reached Dublin, Ireland where I plan work and settle for a while...
