But most people call me Jay and probably like you Traveling is my passion :) ✈️
Im 23, I'm a qualified personal trainer currently working in retail and i'm currently living in the Gold Coast, Australia.
I was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand so Im a Kiwi (It's What people from New Zealand call themselves) but my ethnic and cultural roots are from other parts of the world. My Father is Dutch, French, German and was born and raised in the Netherlands and my Mother is Fijian, Anglo-Indian (which is a mixed minority ethnic group from northern India which is a mixture of English, Indian and African) born and raised in Fiji.
Sooooo now your wondering what the Heck do I look like and how many languages do I speak??? hahah
Well according to most people I have met around the world I look Latino (A very handsome Latino 😉).
English is my mother Tongue, I speak near perfect French, I can say some real weird stuff in Spanish like "Mi gatos beben leche" (my cats drink milk) and I can say bad words in Fijian and Hindi.
- THINGS I LIKE A LOT BESIDES TRAVEL- MORE TRAVEL
- MORE TRAVEL
- VEGANISM (VEGAN SINCE MAY 2015)
- MORE AND MORE TRAVEL
- HEALTH & FITNESS
- WONDERS OF THE WORLD
- AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST TRAVEL
After I graduated from high school in 2011 I had a gap year in Gold Coast, Australia to have a break from studying and worked in retail, after that year I returned to New Zealand and went to university for 2 years.
I studied 1 year of a 3 year degree that I didn't even finish because I didn't like it and then I studied for 1 year to get a diploma to become a qualified personal trainer which i finished in 2014.
Straight after I finished my diploma I moved over to France where I worked odd jobs and traveled around as much of Europe as I could during 2015.
I then moved back to the Gold Coast at the end of 2015 where I worked as a personal trainer early in the morning and in retail from late morning to late evening. In the beginning I was enjoying being a personal trainer because I like to help people, I didn't mind working in retail because love talking to new people and overall I was making pretty decent money.
In contrast I was time poor, I didn't have much of a social life, sleep was an issue because I would have to wake up at 4am most mornings to train clients, I did not enjoy my lifestyle and there was not much traveling going on, even day trips or weekend get aways were hard to plan and to make matters worse my father was diagnosed with a terminal illness and I wanted to fly back to New Zealand as often as I would like to spend as much time with him as I can before the inevitable.
I felt absolutely drained and even though I was making decent money I was time poor and I felt like I was living my life for work and my work was not helping me actually live my life. In brief terms I was alive but not living. So i thought about what i really wanted to do in my life.
- I WANT TO
- Travel full time.
- See my father more often.
- Go where I want when I want and do what I want when I want.
- Be in control of my life.
- Work for myself
