Sister Story - Nia

Name: Nia

Age: 21

About: Love all things creative and arty. Trained beauty therapist. Worked as a retail team leader for a few years but never really knew what I wanted to do. The chance to move to Sydney came up and I never looked back.

Why did you decide to travel? Got given the opportunity to travel and decided to quit my job, move out of home and do it.

Where do you come from? Bath, England

Where do you want to go next? Everywhere! Australia was my first country to travel to & it's just made me want to visit more places.

What is your number one tip for travelling? Believe in yourself & be confident. It will help in every aspect; making friends, trying new things and overcoming problems.

What has been your biggest challenge to overcome? Getting past fears and worries, not letting these things stop me making the most of this experience.

What do you miss about home? Cuddles with my puppy! Long chats and endless cups of tea with my gran and being crazy with my sister.

What have you learnt about yourself? I'm capable of a lot more than I thought, and not to rely on other people so much.

Favourite Quote? Don't listen to what they say, go see.

Favourite new thing? (i.e. food you have tried, skill, tradition, place) finding hidden treasures that most 'travellers' miss.

What advice would you give to other girls wanting to travel? Enjoy every minute, appreciate what an amazing thing you are doing!
