About Me

Hi I'm Carissa, a 20-something Australian, who is on a mission to Start Wandering the globe. Chasing the world and not the mainstream dream. I have travelled over 20 countries across Europe, North America, Asia and the Pacific but there is too much in this world to see to waste any more time. I want you to join me on my journey as I make the changes of a lifetime to become a globetrotting, nomad, backpacking, wanderlusting, adventure-seeker, and Start Wandering.
