Georgina Woskett

An Australian girl sharing my detours & adventures as they happen from around the globe.

You can work pretty much where you want to – on the road, do you find it hard to work or do you just have fun and work when you come back home?

I have recently resigned from my 9-5 life to travel full time. But let's be honest, I do need an income - preferably one that is frequent! So, I started my own business. A business that can be run remotely, and without a shop front. I design my own handbags and have an online store.

By having these two passions running parallel to one another allows me to not favour one or the other... too much! If my business does tie me down for longer than I'd like then I make the most of it by discovering a local cafe and parking myself to watch the world go by - this helps with my severe case of FOMO (fear of missing out!), or I head to the park, go for a walk to get inspiration for my label or dedicate certain days/hours for work and the remainder for discovering.

Do you feel many people are envious of your lifestyle?

Yes of course. On the outside it looks like a glamorous foot loose and fancy free lifestyle, but, if I were to do a "day in the life" (there's a new blog post idea!) then I think it would become a little clearer that there are many things that we do worry about also - ie money, owning your own business, the pressure of making the business successful and most of all - excessive time on your own!

The grass is always greener on the other side. Life is about finding a healthy balance and maintaining it.

In which countries have people recognised you, even when you thought nobody would?

I'm only new to the blogosphere. Hopefully one day I'll meet people whom I've inspired to travel, and others that love my label!

Which three items would you never travel without?

1: My laptop
2: Smartphone
3: Canon 70D

This lifestyle is nothing without those 3 at the bare minimum!

Are there any specific souvenirs or other things you collect from the places you go to?

The only souvenirs I collect are photographs, experiences, blog posts and memories. This may sound corny, but souvenirs are soulless to me. I get great pleasure out of experiences, meeting people - all the intangibles.

There has been the odd occasion and my fingers are crossed that I will get to do this more where I have bought homeware pieces to mark a time and place in my life. When I get older and own my own home I'll do this more - right now, I'm too foot loose and fancy free!
