Welcome to Polkadot Passport!
My name is Nicola, and the Aussie photographer and blogger behind Polkadot Passport.
I took my first overseas trip to Cambodia at the age of 15, and ever since, my restless feet have not been able to stay in one place. After graduating high school, I was determined not to follow the conventional path that was marked out for me. Instead of diving into university or a dead-end 9-5 job, I took my love for photography, travel and adventure, and somehow managed to turn it into a full-time career. You can read about my whole journey to become a full-time travel blogger here.
Over the past five years, I have been lucky enough to travel to 57 countries across 5 continents. Polkadot Passport now receives over 1 million hits a year, has amassed 280,000 followers on social media, won numerous awards and has been featured on the likes of Lonely Planet, Huffington Post and the Daily Mail.
I started Polkadot Passport as a source of travel inspiration and information for adventurous souls. By sharing unique, bucket-list experiences, destination guides, travel photography tips and endless adventures, Polkadot Passport simple goal is to inspire everyone to go out and explore this beautiful world we live in. I am living proof that you don’t to have a full-time career under your belt or an overflowing bank account in order to explore the world. A life of adventure is possible for anyone who is willing to chase after it!
