Start Here

Hey there, welcome to Anita Hendrieka.  I’m so glad you decided to check out my website! 

So, are you confused about where to start? Yeah, me too!  I have a lot of information on this site, so I have broken up for you to make it easier for you to find exactly what you’re looking for.

I have been travelling since I was 19-year-old (god that makes me feel old), and I feel like I have been in the travel industry for a long time.  I started blogging when I was 18 and I never thought 7 years later I would be in a café where I’m currently writing this living in Albania, how crazy is that?!  Life takes some crazy twists and turns.

I am passionate about travel and you can read a bit more about why in my ‘About me’ page.

But, for now, let me introduce you to some different sections that you might be interested in checking out.

How to get a ridiculously cheap flight around the world

how to get cheap flights

I spend a majority of my time in Europe, but I am originally from New Zealand which means I fly around the world A LOT. I hate spending money, I’m half Dutch by the way so maybe that has something to do with it. Through travel hacking, I manage to get extremely cheap flights all around the world. I surprise myself constantly but I’m even more surprised that anyone pays a large sum of money for nay flights these days. Again, I know I’m a tight arse!
