For those of us that think we’re still in August – blame the hot and sunny Melbourne weather – I’m sorry to bring it to you but in 4 days it will be January 2018! Already?! The beginning of a brand new year…

The start of each year brings an opportunity to look back at what’s happened over the last 12 months as well as dream and plan for the 12 to come. Through this process, we get a chance to reinvent ourselves however slightly or drastically we wish to.

What does that mean for Be Beyond Borders?


2017… Be Beyond Borders was born!

After months of thinking, brainstorming, doubting – and a little help from a friend – I finally launched Be Beyond Borders in October 2017. The idea behind it was, and still is, to share the stories of the fascinating people who’ve chosen to make the whole world their home.

Since then, I’ve had the great pleasure of interviewing 6 amazing people about their experiences travelling and living abroad.


Together, they’ve lived in 11 different countries and travelled to dozens more!


It’s been fascinating to see how difficult they found to define home.

It’s been humbling to hear how they’ve all gone after their dreams.

And it’s been surprising to find out that, despite the challenges, they would all recommend a life beyond borders.


2018… Be Beyond Borders will grow up

An ambitious – and scary – statement. But “if you can believe it, you can achieve it” is what they say, isn’t it? Plus, I’ve got plenty of ideas, interviews, articles and so much more in store for the months to come. But to get there, Be Beyond Borders needs more than just me…

That’s where you come in! How do you think Be Beyond Borders can grow?

All I’ve got left to say is thank you. As this year of immense change comes to an end, the word it is leaving me with, is gratitude. That’s why I would like to take a moment to thank you so much for your support and love.

Bring on 2018! Wherever you are in the world, may this new year be filled with exploration whether it’d be through travel or within yourself.


Happy New Be Beyond Borders year to all!
