About

Hi, I’m Helen!

Thanks for taking a moment to check out ‘Tales of a Passport’, and joining me as I embark on my next adventure. After 6 years working in the Travel Industry, and living in 5 different countries I’m finally taking the plunge on what I thought would only be a distant dream.

I’ve resigned from my job, am in the middle of packing up my apartment and in 3.5 weeks I’ll be heading off on a 5 month trip taking in Oceania, South and Central America. I created ‘Tales of Passport’ to document the trip and keep friends and family updated on my antics along the way.

Although I’ve been passionate about all things travel related since I went on my first overseas vacation (aged 10). It’s really only been in the past year that I’ve embraced the solo travel. I dabbled briefly in Indonesia and naively lost my passport, I hiked in Patagonia and ended up breaking my back pack and busting my knees (not ideal), and most recently I ended up sourcing the help of a local Colombian police officer to help me get back to my hostel when I was too eager to explore Salento, Colombia late at night. Despite being a little ridiculous, I look back fondly on these memories and am excited to see what the next 5 months bring.

Hopefully see you along the way!
