About Me

I aspire to share and connect through travel guides and destination-based content ✈︎
My current address is Banff, Alberta – the heart of the Canadian Rockies!

Hi! My name’s Terri, I’m 24 and I haven’t returned home in 3 years. After finishing high school in Australia, I travelled solo for the first time to South Africa. I was definitely out of my comfort zone. I was meeting people from all over the globe and I didn’t have a good sense of the world outside of my 10 years of schooling at a Christian college. However, over those 4 weeks, I developed confidence, life long friendships, knowledge and life skills. Plus, my love for wildlife and travel grew even fonder.

I returned home to Melbourne, Australia and I studied animal rescue and wildlife management for three years. When I received the graduation papers I packed two suitcases and I haven’t returned home since!

I have travelled to 23 countries while living abroad in England and Canada. I met my incredible fiancé, Brad, along my journey and now I have someone special to share it with. Brad is 25 and from Manchester, United Kingdom. An international relationship isn’t the simplest relationship out there. It has put our love to the test and it has made us stronger. We know that we can handle any curveballs that come our way.

Our current address is Banff, Alberta. We are surrounded by natural beauty every day. Every direction you look to is a gigantic mountain!

Brad and I are planning to live in Australia and New Zealand after our time in Canada. We are still undecided about where to live permanently but we are still adventuring our options.

Travel and the experiences it comes with has truly has shaped me into the person I am today.  There’s no regrets about my chosen path and that makes me so happy. All it takes is a great work ethic, research, planning in advance and a little bit of courage to do something out of the ordinary.

My ultimate goal is to connect, inspire and motivate travel in individuals from around the globe ✈︎

Safe & happy travels,
Terri Lake
