My name’s Vanessa and I’m.. a travelholic.

I feel there’s a whole market therapists could be potentially tapping into for people genuinely addicted to traveling since it really is a thing and I love nothing more than meeting others who are going through life as happily undiagnosed travelholics too.

I’m not the biggest fan of self description if that wasn’t made obvious by starting an about me page with an awkward comparison to alcoholics anonymous so I’ll keep it short and to the point: I’m a 20 something Australian of Italian heritage who was lucky enough to have lived abroad as a kid which started the wanderlust journey in me.

I fundamentally believe the world isn’t so big and scary a place as it is made out to be and if you want to explore it all you have to do is simply say yes and go, especially solo.

If you’re wanting advice on Europe, you’ve come to the right place as its my main area of experience. I created this blog as not only a source of practical information but in the hope that it may also be of some inspiration for those of you who also have a list of must see places that never ends, with a genuine concern that they’re running out of time to get to them all.

This is a blog for people that procrastinate by means of googling tropical island getaways. Who have trouble deciding if they should visit Europe by tour group or backpacking. And for those in which having a passion for travel is an ingrained component to their genetic makeup.

They can’t understand when others don’t feel the need to also obsessively discuss future holidays at any, and every, opportunity.

Whether the above applies to you perfectly and you’re an avid wanderer or you simply are just interested in learning some more about a few travel destinations, welcome!


Sempre Voyager comes from the two cultures who have influenced me most with the Italian word ‘sempre’ for always and the French word ‘voyager’ which means to travel.
