Passionate, adventurous and accidentally controversial…


About Me

I am Caitlyn, a writer, explorer, athlete and blogger. I have an interest in the world and how it works, which has often gotten me into trouble! I am always ready for an adventure, whether it’s surfing in Sydney, navigating Berlin’s U-Bahn, or caving in Indiana. When I’m not adventuring I am writing, and my written work has been published numerous times in New Zealand. I aim to write honestly and with tact, however some of my pieces, especially the recent no barricades in these civilised places have, uh, stirred the pot, so to speak. I am a collector of stories, and I welcome anyone from anywhere to share their piece of the world with me.
