G’day and welcome to the Holiad!

After interrailing around Eastern Europe with my friend The Candid Nomad, I caught the travel bug and decided to give solo travel a go!

I started with poring over travel blogs, reading the stories of bloggers who’d gone before me and travelled now around Australia, I took their advice and decided to wing my trip, my plan was to have no plan. So far so good!

This is my first foray into solo travel, and I wanted my blog to be a place for newbie solo travellers to find advice or inspiration from someone out there doing it.

I’m still figuring things out, it’s been an eye opening experience, and though it may not always be easy. It’s the best decision I ever made.


Thanks for for stopping by!

    Hey Holly! I love your blog name- a play on The Iliad, right? So clever because it gives the readers the idea right away that this is going to be an epic adventure ๐Ÿ™‚ I also don’t think it’s weird that you missed writing essays- I know I will too when I’m finished with grad school! I’m not a big traveler, but I think I’ll like the way you write and the stories you tell! Following!
