In March 2012 the team at Wotif.com HQ launched a competition to find Australia’s most ridiculously entertaining travel blogger. Her mission? To cross the ditch, visit her Kiwi neighbours in New Zealand’s Canterbury region and report back via this travel blog.
After weeks of searching and loads of entries, they found her. Meet Kristin Repsher.
Want to know more about Kristin? We’ll let Kristin tell you in her own words…
I’m Kristin Repsher and I’m a Texan expat who currently calls Brisbane, Australia home. I was bitten by the travel bug early; my first plane flight was at the tender age of three weeks and I’ve been hooked ever since. Even though I’m a software engineer by day, writing and photography are two of my favourite activities so it made sense to combine these passions and become a travel blogger.
When I travel, I love taking a bit of adventure: throwing myself out of a perfectly good airplane, tossing myself off a cliff with only a parachute on my back, or rolling down a hill in a glorified hamster ball. When I’m not doing that, I can be found hiking up the nearest hill to snap a scenic panorama or setting up my tripod on the beach to shoot nighttime seascapes.
