Hi there! My name is Gemma. I like scratching the surface and finding places that are a bit unique. When I am not travelling or blogging I work in Marketing Communications.
About the blog
For lack of a better definition, let’s call it lifestyle and travel. The ‘here’ part is all about the great things happening in my home town of Perth, Western Australia and the ‘there’ part is tales from my travels.
I have spent a fair amount of time overseas including my 2008 backpacking trip through Europe where I discovered my love of travel. I then worked in New York City in 2011 before commencing a Rotary exchange program to Portugal. While I was in the area I figured I had may as well make the most of it and backpacked the Greek Islands and Croatia as well.
This year I spent two months exploring South East Asia and am happy to report that the travel bug is still with me!
I hope this blog will help anyone who is looking scratch the surface and uncover something a little different on their travels.
