Location: Sydney, Australia
Where are you from? East Peoria, IL, USA
Role at the OneTravel Blog: Freelance Travel Writer
Where do you want to travel? Russia and Mongolia are next on the list.
Where have you been? I’ve spent considerable time in places like Italy, Spain, Guatemala, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine and Australia. Many of the stays in these locations also involved foreign language lessons, English teaching roles or other courses, such as an archaeological dig in Spain – experiences which I feel have shaped my travels in ways most people can only imagine.
Writing Experience: I’ve been travel blogging on my personal blog, Brooke vs. the World, as a hobby since 2006, but it wasn’t until 2009 that I started to do blogging, writing and social media management as part of work. I am now the official WhyGo Australia guide writer, which is part of the BootsnAll Travel Network, and I can be found doing freelance travel writing work around the Web.
A little more about Brooke: My wanderlust for travel began with a high school trip to Italy, and my mom regrets letting me go to this very day because of it. I have a soft spot for puppies, cannoli and former Soviet countries, one of which I met my Australian boyfriend in during travels in 2008. Travel is an everyday journey that I love to take and share through my writing.
