Hey, I’m Nikki!

Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I’m a blogger and travel lover from Auckland, New Zealand.

This blog all started back in October 2015 just before I was about to board my one-way flight to London via Japan. I’d been dreaming of that day for a long time. It was the beginning of the European romance I’d seen in the The Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants, and a great big adventure for me to get to know myself.

On that maiden voyage my friend and I started by finding our feet in Japan, before I flew further abroad to begin my whirlwind winter in Europe. Ticking off bucket-list experiences like Greek island hopping and exploring the Dalmatian coast was a dream come true. But twenty-four countries later and two years living abroad, my visa was up and it all came to an abrupt end.

A lot changed in that time, while some things remained the same – like my burning passion for travel. Now back in New Zealand, I’m pursuing similar passions while plotting periodic adventures abroad and around the beautiful Pacific.

I created WorldFanFair as a space to record and share my travel experiences – to feel the fear and travel. I hope some of the stories here inspire you to do the same.
