Hi – My names Mike and I’m another Kiwi who has left the peace and quiet of New Zealand to travel the world, writing yet another travel blog.
What started off as an easy way to share photos and stories with mum while I’m overseas has gradually changed into something more useful. Here you’ll find stories about places I’ve visited, tips to get the most out of your limited money, awesome places to visit and unique insights from expats and locals.
I’ve been funemployed for close to two years now, but have moved back to the real worlds and started to work as a freelancer in Content, Blogging, Social Media Marketing & Events. In the past I’ve been involved in the Conferences & Training, Event Promotions and Paintball Industries and still freelance to New Zealand’s fastest growing paintball field – Asylum Paintball.
Since I’ve left New Zealand I’ve travelled and lived in Croatia (Pula, Rijeka, Bakar, Dubrovnik & Zagreb), Bosnia (Mostar, Sarejavo), France (Paris), Germany (Munich & Berlin), Poland (Warsaw), Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur & Langkawi), Laos (Vientenne), Cambodia (Phnom Penh & Siam Reap) and have spent close to a year living in Thailand (Bangkok, Koh Tao & Koh Phangan), and have met and moved in with my girlfriend who will be travelling back to New Zealand with me this year, before we head off to the United States.
I’m available for freelance work and have experience in:
- Content Writing, Blogging, Search Engine Optimisation, Social Media Marketing
- Paintball Industry, Event Management, Product Sourcing, Marketing, Strategy & Operations
- Conferences, Training/Professional Development & Corporate Event Management & Marketing in NZ’s leading Conference & Training Company for over 6 years.
- Music Industry Event Management, Radio/Club DJ, Marketing, PR, Stage Management, Festival Work & Artist Liason.
