Welcome!

Hi! My name is Kate and I am a blogger from Adelaide, Australia. I have been travelling since I was a young child, and have enjoyed solo trips around Southeast Asia and South America. I have been diagnosed with clinical depression and borderline personality disorder, both of which affect every aspect of my day to day life.

I am highly passionate about destigmatising mental illness and helping other people learn how to cope and particularly how to travel with their disorders. I believe that it is absolutely possible to travel with chronic mental illness, as long as you have the right coping strategies in place. I also advocate for ethical travel practices, and believe that world travellers should be as globally responsible as possible.

While there are a lot of good travel blogs [...]

Please visit your GP or seek your own information if you are looking to quit your antidepressants, especially if you choose cold turkey.   I first went on antidepressants around three years ago because I felt completely disconnected from my body. I felt like I was in a constant daze, felt no emotions towards anyone or anything around me, and couldn’t break through the heaviness in [...]
