Traveller located in Sydney and Hotel blogger for RoomCritic. Always planning the next trip whether it be overseas or a mini break. Love jumping on a flight to a new destination, the feeling of anonymity in a foreign city and an accent. I’m a self travel planner that also loves to assist others embarking on their own trip.
