About @TakeOnTheWorld

32 years old • Female • Citizen of New Zealand

Born in a tiny NZ town called Kaikoura, I grew up a very blessed person, world class scenery in my backyard of mountain ranges behind and a sea well known for resident Sperm Whale, Dolphins, Fur Seals and seafood.

At 20 I moved to the Whitsunday Islands in Australia and spent two years working on Ex World Racing Yachts before traveling parts of USA, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and a short stint in Canada. I them went back to the Whitsundays and took up my old job to save enough money to keep traveling.

I have just started a year long adventure in Cuba, Central and South America!

Central America

I have spent the last few months in Central America, I started in Cancun :( and have made my way with a friend through Belize and south. Central America is a stunning area and would recommend a visit to anyone and everyone. We have been travelling with no plans, only with a vague idea on where to go, and booking only a few days in advance, sometimes the night before. We have found that sometimes a little prep would have been better. Any questions, I will do my best to help you out.
