About Me


I’m Court and I’m documenting my life through travel and unforgettable experiences. Born and raised on Maryland’s eastern shore, a country girl at heart, but small town life couldn’t keep me for long. In 2010, I started University and met my best friend and soulmate Patrick, an Australian import for our University’s D1 soccer team. Patrick was the one who first ignited my love of traveling when he asked me to go to New York City for the weekend. With both of us being only just 18 and it being my first trip without “adults” and in the big city I was definitely nervous. This trip gave me the push that I needed to realize there are so many more places out there and that I can go wherever I want if I put my mind to it.

In 2015, I took a leap of faith, quit my full-time job (eek!) and moved to Newcastle, Australia to pursue my dreams of traveling and living abroad. The best part is I get to share this crazy adventure with my best friend and boyfriend of 6 yrs. This blog is a space for me to share with everyone my personal story about life in a new country, An American Expat in Aus. As well as sharing Patrick and my travel experiences & adventures. For those of you out there who are interested to know, I am 25 yrs old, work full-time in the field of oncology clinical trials and I travel on weekends! Enjoy!
