Bio – Tracy Collins

Tracy 1

I’m Tracy – originally from the UK but currently living in Brisbane Australia.

I’ve lived and worked all over the world for 50+ years collecting memories, fabulous experiences, a second language (French) and making many lifelong friends.

I travelled solo in my 20s, as a single parent in my 30s, with my husband and daughter in my 40s and now in my 50s as an empty nester.

On this blog, I share a lifetime of travel knowledge and experiences to help YOU travel the world one country (and train journey) at a time.
