Originally hailing from England, in 2013 Cassie left behind her cushy job as a travel agent to begin a new chapter of her life as a full-time travel writer and digital nomad, traversing the planet in search of wild adventures and ridiculous road trips. So far, she's traveled to 45 different countries, ticking off her bucket list along the way, from winter camping in Canada and driving across America to hitchhiking through Europe, motorbiking through Southeast Asia, and busing through Morocco. After several years in Asia, including living on a tropical beach paradise in Cambodia and a stint volunteering in Nepal, these days Cassie can most likely be found exploring Central America or Australia, with her trusty notebook and camera in hand.
