Hello, I’m Viv and this is my blog. I’m an Australian writer and digital nomad, travelling the world after coming to terms with what I’ve known for a long time: working for other people just doesn’t work for me. My travel goal is to have birthdays in as many different countries as possible. So far I have:

  • Australia (1-10, 12-22)
  • Fiji (11)
  • UK (23)
  • France (24)

And I have just confirmed that 2013’s birthday location will be the USA! I shall be turning 25 in New York City!

Why Two Hands Free?

I have always had a problem with overpacking. And hoarding. And having too many clothes. Over the years, I’ve slowly been getting better, learning what you should bring when you travel and what you should leave at home; what you should buy and what you should leave at the cute little store, even though it’s not that expensive. I’ve also been slowly cutting down on my enormous wardrobe, and trying to explain to my boyfriend that this is a difficult task because of how emotionally attached I am to my clothes. At the moment, I am of no fixed address, which is incredibly liberating, but my possessions are in four different cities in different parts of the world. I’m working on bringing that figure down.
