“I’m Basically A Hobbit Raised By Leprechauns!”

Hi there, I’m Tara. I’m a 30yr old travel blogger, amateur photographer and occasional pharmacist living in DUBLIN. I was born in New Zealand and raised in Ireland = DUAL CITIZEN (two passports, woohoo!). Am I Kiwi? Am I Irish? Am I both? Am I neither? I’ve settled for both. I’m basically a hobbit raised by leprechauns.

I’ve always travelled a fair amount. It’s in my blood. My mother had a habit of booking last minute flights and whisking me and my sister away places. I blame her for my itchy feet. Ever since I was a child I’ve always thought that there was a whole wide world out there to explore and I was going to see it. I remember looking at my mother and thinking, “I want to be like her, I want to have lived in foreign lands and have exciting stories to tell my children.”

I’ve notched up a few places, and I’m working on some more. For me, it’s less about the amount of countries I’ve seen and more about the extraordinary experiences I have had while there. I’ve been lucky enough to experience some wonderful things such as training Japanese ninjutsu with grand master Hatsumi (The last living ninja) in Japan, climbing the Inca trail in Peru, horse riding up a volcano in Iceland, getting lost in the favelas of Rio, Brazil and many more.

This blog aims to provide a refreshingly honest female view on travel, with a generous sprinkling of my incredibly colourful lifestyle. I want to remind you that it is so VERY possible to change your life. I want to remind you that you can create the life you’ve always wanted for yourself. I want to remind you that every day you are creating your own story, and why, oh WHY, wouldn’t you want it to be a damn good read?! SO get out there, face your fears, be bold and live your life while you can.

I feel like there’s so much more about myself and my life that I want to share with you guys, but we’ve only just met! Honestly, a girl needs to retain a little mystery. You can find out more about me and my life by reading my posts.
