My name is Izy Berry, I’m 25 and from New Zealand. Prior to jetting off on my own, I really hadn’t done that much travel. I was so nervous about traveling, especially solo in places that didn’t speak English.
I booked a one way flight to Thailand in 2010 and I can honestly say it was the best thing I’ve ever done. Since then I’ve visited over 30 countries, lived in two and volunteered in Cambodia and Laos.
I’ve stopped traveling continuously, in part for love and in part so I can focus on my work. I have a few trips planned for 2014 already which I’m really excited about. I’ll be heading to Perth in April to watch my partner compete in the Surf comps there and then we’ll be visiting Bali for some sun, sand and surf. Later in the year we are planning to spend a few months in Europe which will be a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to returning to some of my favourite places and making some new ones.
