Hello fellow lovers of all things travel, welcome to My Meraki Travel – We are so happy you found us!
We are Emma & Reece- Millennial Aussie Lovebirds on the wrong side of 25 consistently building a life we can fall in love with. We are travel content creatives & have created this space to share our own travel experiences, tips and sample itineraries to help busy & overwhelmed couples on a budget feel empowered to create an affordable travel/home life balance and practically plan their own adventures with ease. We want to inspire you to see as much of this beautiful globe as humanly possible, whilst of course trying to maintain the veggie garden & that home life hustle.
It has been unrealistic for us to travel full time, but we have cracked the code to being able to sustainably travel part time – every year, build our first home, start two businesses and even maintain a social life! It is our goal to assist you to create a beautiful balance in your life so you can do the same. Our content supports growth for independent travel, teaching you to do your own research & plan your own adventures. Once you have the resources and the passion – anything is possible!
Emma is a 27 year old Aussie lover & daughter who grew up on the little island of Tasmania, Australia and is the primary content creator at MMT. She utilises this space to support her growth & current studies in Travel Journalism. Emma’s career background is in both beauty & finance, but she has had a passion for writing & expressing ideas since she could hold a pen. Combining this passion with her love of travel and creating itineraries – My Meraki Travel was born. Emma’s love for travel began when she spontaneously hopped on a plane with two mates at barely 18 years old to Bali, Indonesia. Being from such a tiny part of the world, the culture shock was a lot to comprehend, but little did she know this culture shock was about to become the most addictive constant in her life and would change the perspective of her little teenage world indefinitely.
Fast forward 9 years and Emma has now visited 20 countries, 4 continents and over 80 cities and is so passionate about helping others to see the world. Very rarely will Emma venture out the front door without pen and paper at the ready, that is her favourite thing about travel – the ability it has to wake you up to the world around you, to appreciate your surroundings so much so, you feel compelled to write them down to savor the moments.
Reece is a 28 year old Aussie bloke and is probably the most chilled out person you will ever meet in your life. He is the other half of My Meraki Travel and has a background in Tiling in the construction industry. After coming home from a trip to the U.S in 2017, he decided to start his own tiling business that he and Emma manage from home for about 80% of the year when they aren’t traveling. His love for travel started after he met Emma in 2013 at a bar in their home town, Launceston – it didn’t take long before they started planning their first getaway to Thailand together & needless to say, he caught the travel bug in a big way – they have been planning and travelling together ever since. Reece’s favourite thing about travel is the overwhelming feeling of flying into a brand new city & he is crazy about the food cultures, always trying to recreate street food from around the globe in the kitchen.
