About Me

Hello and welcome to A2BviaZ - the blog where I write about my travel experiences, various lifestyle topics, a bit of random chit chat and some yummy recipes especially created with the budget concious backpacker in mind!



My name is Shelby - this is me

I'm 21 years old and I'm from Lincolnshire, UK. Currently I reside in the beautiful Coromandel, New Zealand. I have a two year working holiday visa and when that expires in 2015 I plan to travel Australia with my boyfriend - Tom!

My dream is to travel the world - I want to visit every country I possibly can! I would also like my own business in hospitality - perhaps a backpacker hostel! I've worked as a Hotel Manager in Skegness, England for almost two years and now again in New Zealand.

My hobbies include pinning like a crazy woman on Pinterest, reading and crafting 12th scale miniatures. I love to meet new people and make new friends.

I have a bucket list... it's pretty huge. Enormous even. I couldn't limit myself to a regular number like 100. I had to list absolutely everything I would squeal and get excited about if I could tell people "I've done that!" Life is too short and we aren't around for long. Why not fill your head with fun and crazy memories - no matter how simple, stupid or impossible something may seem, if you can dream it you can do it!

You're welcome to stick around or drop me an email at shellbyfay(@)hotmail(dot)com.
This blog is under construction at the moment, so please ignore the mess :p
