The beginning of Polkadot Passport

    “Escape into a world of visual memoirs & wandering pondering,
written and photographed by a young, sojourning soul.” 

Today is the very exciting launch of my shiny new travel blog… I present to you, Polkadot Passport!

I should probably start by introducing myself. My name is Nicola Easterby. I’m nineteen, I take photographs for a living, drink way too much peppermint tea, drive a bright yellow mini, and have a heart brimming with wanderlust. I am a born and bred Aussie, but the latest chapter in my life has taken me over to New Zealand for a whole new adventure!

In my nineteen years of life I’ve managed to visit nineteen countries… Australia, New Zealand, the UK, France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Monaco, Greece, Czech Republic, Austria, Belgium, Holland, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, the USA, Cambodia and Hong Kong. I am hanging on the edge of my seat to see where my next voyage will take me next… So please,  come along for the ride!

I’ve started Polkadot Passport to further fuel my dangerous addiction to travel, and of course to share this with all you travel junkies who empathize with my exploration obsession. Be warned, this blog may whisk you away to the places you’d rather be, serve you up a big dose of wanderlust, and possibly cause you to empty out your wallet onto the desk of your nearest travel agent.

So please, join in the adventures of Polkadot Passport as I embark on this next exciting chapter of my life!

The MOST Important Lesson that I’ve Learnt from Travelling

Travelling has taught me a lot of things, but the lesson I learnt on my very first overseas trip was the one that changed my life forever.  I can’t deny that for most of my childhood, I lived inside a sheltered little bubble. I grew up in a middle-class household in...

How I live the dream… but it isn’t always dreamy

One morning, I’m waking up in the giant king-sized bed of a 600-pounds-a-night hotel room in London, with arguably the most optimum view over the city and a ridiculously excessive breakfast spread in front of me. The next morning, I’m waking up on the lumpy mattress...

The time I fell in love with Salzburg (just not at first sight)

When I first arrived into Salzburg's main train station, my heart dropped a little. Just days before, I had expected the station in Vienna to be met with winding cobblestone alleyways, elaborate building facades and the sweet sound of buskers playing their cellos....
