Kirsty Louise Pike
Hi, I’m Kirsty, a travel junkie who is lucky enough to have a career that feeds my habit! I combine travelling and living abroad with teaching, writing and volunteering. I’ve been in Vietnam for nearly 3 years now, prior to that I spent 6 months getting acquainted with down under (New Zealand and Australia) and 5 years living and working in Malta. I’ve also travelled to several European countries as well as Thailand, Cambodia, Hong Kong and Goa.
I prefer to settle a while when I travel, rather than constantly moving from pillar to post in a quest to tick off as many ‘must-see’ destinations as possible. I find that lingering longer in a place helps me to get a much more authentic feel for it and leads to deeper connections with the locals.
