Hi - I’m Kirstie!
…A small town North Carolina girl who has been happily on the go since 2015.
I am currently based in Malmö, Sweden where I work as an English teacher, writer, photographer, videographer, and self-proclaimed wine enthusiast. I know, I know… it’s a lot - but I have a lot of interests and am a firm believer in never limiting myself to one box (or bottle - if we’re talkin’ wine).
In 2020, I will be going on my biggest adventure yet as an Ambassador for the European Union’s Faces2Hearts program.
This project will take me to Sierra Leone to document and report stories of the positive global changes made by the European Union’s International Development Initiatives.
Welcome to my little corner of the web.
In this space, I aim to get off the beaten path, dive deep, and share more than just city guides, cute cafes, and insta-worthy photo spots. Don’t get me wrong, you’ll find those here, too… but that’s not it.
You’ll also find travel tales, tips, and honest information about important social and environmental issues around the world… plus what you can do to help.
By sharing my stories from the road, I hope to help facilitate controversial conversations, increase understanding of issues we may otherwise feel unaffected by, and to open your hearts and minds to new people, places, and perspectives.
From what I’ve seen so far, the world isn’t a scary place… and people are mostly good. On HallAroundtheWorld, I hope to share more of that with you.
Thank you for visiting my website! Don’t be shy! - Say hello!
