My name is Anita Hendrieka and I am currently 23 years old. I’m from the beautiful Aotearoa (New Zealand). At 17 I moved out of home to follow my passion of designing. I studied Interior design for a year and grabbed a diploma. At 19 I got bored of the 9-5 work life and wanted something new and exciting to sink my teeth into. That is when I decided to buy a one-way ticket to the UK and get myself a working holiday visa. My original plan was to only stay for a year, but I stayed for the full two years (that my visa allowed) and travelled in my spare time meeting a bunch of new and interesting people that have taught me some important lessons in my life. It’s given me a complete brand new positive perspective on everything and I wanted to share everything with you on this blog.
I started blogging in 2011, being inspired by the blogger Gala Darling. Originally my blog was a D.I.Y and lifestyle, but after being bored of writing that kind of content I decided to switch to a travel blog when I moved to England. I always have loved creative projects and I feel that blogging really challenges me to work towards something and gives me deadlines to meet. I spent a lot of time rebranding Anita Hendrieka which officaly opened for business in Janurary the 22nd, 2015.
