Hokitika Gorge, New Zealand

Hi, I'm Mallory!

Since I was 15 years old my goal has been to travel the world.  As I began to travel more and more I realized the easiest way to see as many places as possible is to do it on a very tight budget.  I believe the world gets smaller through language, I speak fluent Spanish and I'm learning French and Japanese.  I've recently left a job I was with for 7 years to take advantage of the Working Holiday scheme New Zealand offers and I have begun a career as a grant writer as a result of this journey.

Travel Addicted

After I graduated high school I moved to Central America and spent time living in Nicaragua and Panamá, backpacking through Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala as well.  A little bit later I returned to travel again through Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and El Salvador with some good friends I met living in CAm the first time around.  In 2012 I took a backpacking trip through Europe: Ireland, England, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, and The Vatican.  A year later I visited Portugal. In 2016 I moved to Hawai'i and in January 2019 I took the jump with my partner to move to New Zealand.
