If you want to ask me a quick question, best catch me on my Facebook page or Twitter. If you have a more detailed question that you think is relatable to others and would be good for me to make an entire video about, drop me an email with the subject ‘YOUTUBE VIDEO SUGGESTION’. Unfortunately my schedule is incredibly hectic at the moment so I am unable to answer extra long personal queries!

I’m not a travel expert or have any kind of qualification in giving travel advice. I’m just a girl who loves to travel and am answering the questions I have received in the past about my travels. The answers given are all my personal opinions. (but I like to think that’s what makes these videos a little better – advice from personal experience rather than text book answers)

    It would be lovely if you did a video about both how you plan your backpacking trips (what resources you use ect) and how you book your flights. I'm planning a 6 month trip to South-East Asia and I was just wondering how far in advance you book your flights and if you book any flights whilst travelling to avoid needing an open ended ticket? love your videos!! Thanks!!

    When on a working holiday visa in Australia, can you fly in and out of the country? E.g Asia? (:

    Hey! Thank you for inspiring me to backpack, I had finally summoned up the courage to go by myself. I'd love to invite you to my channel to check out what kind of crazy stuff I got into in Central America. Happy Travels, maybe we'll cross paths down road

    Hi just wanted some advice… trying to decide where I want to go back packing. I've had amazing times in Nepal and Morocco but I got hassled a lot/people trying to sell things and for me it puts me off travelling to certain places. Just wondering if you were able to tell me which places you were hassled at the most and the least please? I'm kind of in 2 minds because although Nepal and Morocco were amazing I've stuck to western countries mainly for this reason xx
