Education and Experience

He is currently offering writing services on his website: nicholashastie.com.
“After graduating from University, I embarked on a journey to the U.K and Ireland, where I uncovered a passion for travel. On this journey, I visited London, Edinburgh, the Scottish Highlands, Dublin and the countryside of Ireland.
Upon returning, it was apparent to me that I had caught the travel bug, so I spontaneously decided to book a flight to Japan. Here, I got to experience a completely different culture, the way an extremely different society operates and taste some diverse, local foods. It was through this trip that I decided to combine my two passions, travel and writing. I began contributing to companies and blogs, including Contiki, Topdeck, and Travel & Destinations.
Before returning from Japan, I had already booked another ticket to New Zealand’s North Island. I experienced the remarkable countryside and bustling cities, all while in a camper van surrounded by friends. Following this trip, I decided to visit Hawaii. I visited Oahu and The Big Island during the volcanic eruption. I feel it’s crucial that we enjoy as many new and exciting experiences as we can, while we still have the chance.
Travel has a misconception surrounding it, where people perceive it to be very expensive when in reality, it’s as affordable as ever. Although I have no current planned trips for the future, I am yearning for a big adventure to an undecided destination. I am open to suggestions so feel free to get in touch! “
