About Me

About Local Leo

I’ve been avoiding writing my ‘about’ page for such a long time now… why do I find talking about myself this difficult? But I figured it’s about time I get to it so here goes. My name is Jenny and I am a 23 year old creative/ bookworm/ vegetarian/ feminist/ Leo and traveller in the midst of my unpredictable and (mostly) exciting early twenties.

WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE!

So you may be wondering what the reasoning is behind said unpredictability and excitement? Basically, I am not sure what I want to do with my life post university, post gap year. However, one thing I do know is I love to travel. That’s where Local Leo comes in. I am a hobby blogger, enjoy making friends on the internet with similar interests and love to share my experiences with whoever wants to read them. I also love that when I am old and forgetful I will have a wealth of information on my younger self to look back at (is it possible to feel nostalgic about your future self looking back on your current self because I think I do!).

On Local Leo you will be able to find travel inspiration, guides, advice for travellers, travel experiences and recipes as well as a few other life related posts thrown in the mix.

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME…

I am a citizen of the beautiful little country of New Zealand and I grew up in England with my sister, kiwi mother and Austrian/English father, making me a bit of a mutt! I speak English (obviously!), decent German and school girl French but would love to be fluent in all three. In 2015 I moved to Salzburg, Austria to study one semester of my degree with Erasmus. I graduated in 2017 and since then have been escaping the realities of life in New Zealand and South East Asia! I have varied interests and hobbies outside of travel which include trad climbing, weaving (I studied textiles at university!), ethical and sustainable skincare and obviously blogging.
