A worldwide blogger

She is known as "Young Adventuress", so you know meeting Liz Carlson is going to be a blast.

She's American by birth, South Islander by choice and blogs, writes and photographs her way around the world.

Liz was the inaugural winner of the Christchurch Airport award for "Best Travel Blog of the Year" at the Travel Media Awards. She was selected as winner because she tells her stories with enthusiasm, creativity, style and a passion for travel - all of which we identify with and applaud.

But we'll let her tell you her story herself....

Hi, I'm Liz, and I got my first taste for traveling when I was 16 years old. On my own, 10 years and 40 something countries later, my wanderlust has only grown and the list of countries I want to visit longer. After living in Spain for the past few years and returning home for a stint, I then quit my job and moved to New Zealand. I openly share my misadventures as I wander, eat and photograph my way around the world.


Congratulations Liz! We are proud to have you in the "South" team.
