Realising my Dream in Athens, Greece

Welcome to a very special place on the internet called WorldFanFair! My name is Nikki Louise and like many teenagers, from the age of about sixteen I day-dreamed of a life abroad travelling the world. I created this space as a hub to record and share travel experiences and connect with others in a global community, but we also have one very important driving force.

The WorldFanFair mantra is to feel the fear and follow it, and to inspire others to do the same, because it’s those things we are most nervous to try which push our personal boundaries and return the highest reward. So we feel the fear and follow it, usually to an exciting destination abroad.


One of my early inspirations for travel was the film The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, in which Lena visits the Greek Islands for the summer. After graduating from University I didn’t have much money, but I was determined and I had a plan to make my ultimate dream a reality to move abroad and travel the world.

October of 2015 I boarded a one-way flight to London via Japan to start a 3 month tour of Europe before eventually resettling in London with my boyfriend at the beginning of 2016. Twenty-four countries later plus two years living abroad and a lot has changed, while some things have remained the same, like my burning passion for travel. Now in New Zealand, I’m excited to spend the summer at home while conjuring up my next adventure.
