About Defining Decade

A travel blog dedicated to navigating adventures & shaping futures

I’m Olivia!

Born and raised in Australia, juggling a full-time career in travel marketing and living a life of adventure, one country at a time.

Like many people, I followed the traditional path to happiness and success -going to University, getting the dream job, the whole deal.

But surprise, that didn’t quite cut it. I found myself yearning for more, questioning my purpose, and facing a bit of an identity crisis.

So, what was my move?

I packed my bags and embarked on my first solo adventure. And boy, did that flip the script!

From the gorgeous beaches of Australia, the blue holes of Vanuatu, the ski fields in Japan, to the rice fields in Bali, I’ve extensively travelled the Asia Pacific region and beyond and I’m not slowing down anytime soon!

Travelling in your twenties? I like to think it’s like uncovering this secret source of empowerment and life-changing moments.

Anyway enough about me!
