I’m Caitlin Wallis, an English rose (pah!) living and working in Sydney, Australia. I took a sabbatical from a finance career in London last October and have been using the time to travel the world, have adventures, and do things that make me happy.
I love travelling, triathlon, and food and drink, so you may see a good mix of the three in my posts. So far I’ve been to 37 countries and hope to keep adding to the list!
ABOUT THE BLOG
‘Where’s Wallis?’ was born in October 2014 to document my adventures as I spent 2 and a half months travelling the long way around from the UK to Australia via Cuba, Central America, the USA, Fiji and New Zealand.
As I explain in my first ever post I created the blog for three reasons:
- To keep family and friends up to date with my travels;
- To have a record of my experiences to look back on; (8 months in I’m already enjoying doing this) and
- To hopefully provide some recommendations and tips to travellers who visit places after me.
I’ve already had friends, and friends of friends asking for recommendations for places I’ve been and it’s great to be able to refer them to the blogs for those cities/countries where I’ve highlighted my favourite of the places to stay, eat and drink, and activities! It would be wonderful if this extends to the wider travelling community.
Now that I’m settled in Sydney I plan to continue blogging about the adventures I go on within Australia, and further afield. So far I’ve made it to Melbourne, Byron Bay, Fraser Island, The Blue Mountains, Jervis Bay, the Hunter Valley and Uluru.
I’ve just got back from a fantastic trip to Vietnam and am off to the Bay of Islands in New Zealand’s North Island.
Going forward, I also want to add hints and tips about some of the other countries I’ve been to in the past, including Iceland, Rwanda, Tanzania, India, China, Thailand, Singapore and Inter-railing around Europe.
You can see place holder pages for those countries I’ve visited in past trips in the continent dropdown menus: if you have any specific questions please get in touch via my ‘Contact me‘ page.
