Hello, Kia ora, Cześć!
Welcome to this little safe haven of mine that goes by the name ‘Wandering Harter’.
A space for me to use as an outlet for my writing needs! Whether it’s educational, entertaining, helpful or just a load of random b-s, this is where my creativity will hopefully somewhat flourish!
So a little about me, well, for as long as I have been able to jumble together my thoughts I have had this undeniable urge to explore and travel this big wide world. It started with small adventures around my surrounding neighbourhoods in the early stages of my life, to lengthy plane journeys to the opposite side of the world by my late teens.
I am originally from New Zealand but over the years I have lived in both Australia and England with long-term backpacking around the U.K and Europe. I have experienced flat living, hostel living, van life, couch surfing and a whole lot of the in-between. It is a challenge for me to sit still for too long and I can tend to be very hard to pin down, one day I’m running a designer fashion store for a famous Australian designer in Sydney to getting lost in the canals of Venice or partying a little too hard in Amsterdam.
My current location- Christchurch, New Zealand (be prepared for this to change often).
As the cheesy saying goes “life is an adventure” and I can definitely vouch for that one. There are many adventures to be had and I hope to share small snippets of those here along with some travel tips I’ve picked up throughout my solo endeavours, some potential DNM’s (deep ‘n’ meaningful’s) and maybe even some surprises along the way (mostly surprising to myself cause who knows what my mind will conjure up to write and publish on this site for everyone to read!). I can’t deny I’ve experienced many wonderful, emotional and just plain crazy things throughout my current two and a bit decades of life so why not share some of it on here!
Whether you have stumbled upon my page by accident or dads managed to figure out how to work the net and has come to give me moral support (Hi Dad!), or for whatever reason, I welcome you and hope you enjoy having a browse and potentially pick some great tips up along the way or maybe even get inspired by some of the things I have to say! Because that really is one of the main purposes of this blog, to help and inspire you along with having a creative outlet for me to pour my heart and soul into!
If you are interested in reading more about what you can expect from this site plus a bit more of a backstory feel free to read my blog post – How Wanderingharter came about (and what’s to come).
Feel free to flick me a message to say hi or maybe confess your deepest darkest secrets, who knows? Let’s chat if you’re up for it?
