Born in Auckland, New Zealand a little longer ago than I care to admit, my zest for travel has taken me to over 55 countries.
Since 2015, I’ve called New York City home – a feat I dreamed of for years but finally accomplished thanks to winning the green card lottery. Besides travel, my other passion is theatre, and I love every stressful minute of my full-time job in the marketing department of one of Broadway’s leading non-profit theatres.
But, of course, I’ll always jet away every chance I get. I’ve visited over 20 countries in the past two years – while working full-time.
Before the big apple, I also spent two years living in London – which is where I picked up the travel writing habit. Originally named “The Antipodean”, this blog has now been around for over six years – including the popular “Life Lesson” series of comedic fails.
Along the way, I began guest blogging for brands including Flight Centre UK and Busabout, eventually getting published in print as a regular contributor to New Zealand’s leading travel magazine (Destinations, now sadly digital-only).
The purpose of Andrew Roams today is to inspire readers to plan their next adventure – whether through a destination guide, a beautiful photo, or a hilarious story. I love hearing from readers who have found inspiration in these pages – from the guy who booked a trip to the slums of New Delhi after reading this post, to the travel agent who sends her clients links to my posts. You make this worthwhile.
