My name is Kate and I’m a travel addict. I’ve had this little problem since I first moved from Canada to England for a four-month work term in university. As soon as I stepped off the plane I knew I was hooked! Now here I am, seven years later, and my urge to travel is stronger than ever. When I’m not actually traveling I’m thinking about traveling….and that’s why I think this website is so fantastic! What better way to get your daily traveling fix when you can’t actually be out there on the road?! And Geckogo has certainly been good to me – the six weeks I spent in Africa thanks to the Ultimate Intrepid Traveler contest were some of the best weeks of my life!
 
Travel really is my passion – experiencing the world and all it has to offer! I’ve had to make some big sacrifices in order to have the experiences that I’ve had, but I don’t regret a thing and would do it all again in a heartbeat! And, in the words of one of my favourite Canadian bands, The Tragically Hip, “No one’s interested in something you didn’t do”. Travel is important to me, so I’ll do what it takes to make it happen even if it can only be in short bursts for now! Like any addict, I know that it’s the high I get from traveling that makes me always want to get back on the road. Nothing compares to the feeling of stepping outside of your comfort-zone and experiencing new cultures, customs and ways of life. There are always going to be places I want to see and dozens of potential trips planned in the back of my head, but I know that it’s really only ever a matter of time (and money!) until I can get back out into the world!

Happy travels! : )
