Kia ora! I’m Yvette.
I’m from New Zealand and I live in Scotland.
Three years ago I sold most of my possessions, squeezed the rest into a suitcase and booked a single one-way ticket to the other side of the world. I lived in Canada for 2 years before making the move to Scotland.
During my solo travels, I have become somewhat of an ‘accidental adventurist’.
I’ve lived in a van in the Canadian rockies, worked in the mountains at a ski resort, hiked the (very illegal) Stairway to Heaven in Hawaii and most recently, hiked the length of Scotland!
This blog is a collection of my very best hiking and travel advice in Scotland and Canada, lessons learnt from my expat lifestyle, and how I’ve made a career out of being a travel blogger in Scotland.
How To Work And Travel
Who is Wayfaring Kiwi?
Kia ora, I'm Yvette and I'm a 29-year old Kiwi (slang for New Zealander). I have been lucky enough to live in the three most beautiful countries in the world: New Zealand, Canada, and now, Scotland.
I am an expert when it comes to travel, combining my experience as a travel agent to source the cheapest flights, accommodation and tours.
