I am a lightweight minimalist traveller. I write reviews for travel related products and also link to the videos of the same reviews. I have been travelling with a single 20 litre backpack that weighs just under 6kg (or 13lbs). I intend to travel a lot more and for longer periods of time and also find out how to make my bag lighter and more versatile along the way. I have also just written an eBook titled: One Light Bag: Packing Tips with the aim of helping others to packing lighter backpacks.

Nikki believes that the passion and risk of falling in love are perfectly mirrored in the danger and beauty of wild places. Every romance she writes contains an element of nature, and if readers catch a waft of rich e ... read more

The characters and events have matured and evolved alongside my own journey to adulthood. I also have self-published two children's story books through Lulu.com, and ... read more
