About Local Leo

About Us Local Leo

At Local Leo we like to think of ourselves as being pretty tuned into the ways of the world! However, there is always more to discover and we are curious people. So, with the basic ambition to fill the gaps in our knowledge and become more informed, mindful humans, we research and share! But what is it we actually write about here? Well… the content on Local Leo is travel orientated, ethically conscious and relevant to full time travellers and working professionals alike. It acts as an online resource for the ambitious, adventurous and travel obsessed. Our favourite categories include city & food guides, budget & solo travel advice, volunteer & remote work opportunities and advice for work travel balance. We think Local Leo is pretty cool, and hope you do too.

I’m a citizen of the beautiful country of New Zealand and I grew up in England with my family! I speak fluent English and decent German but would love to be fluent in both. In 2015 I moved to Salzburg, Austria to study one semester of my degree with Erasmus. After graduating I spent a fair bit of time escaping the realities of life! I travelled around New Zealand and South East Asia before relocating to London and starting my career. THESE ARE THE COUNTRIES I HAVE VISITED: Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Poland, Portugal, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Thailand, Ukraine, United States, Vatican City (does this count?), Vietnam.
