‘Fresh legs’ is a term in sports such as football, and it means a substitute who hasn’t yet played in a match, and who therefore will have more energy than those already on the field. A few weeks ago, VroomVroomVroom sat down for a chat with Dave of Dave’s Travel Corner, one of the oldest and most honored blogs online.
This time, we want to bring to you an in-depth conversation with a Victorian who has just started out in the world of travel writing, Kylie of Travel Reviews by Kylie.
Travel Reviews by Kylie began this year as a Facebook-based travelogue that features reviews of beautiful destinations across Australia, including accomodations, campervan parks and similar tourism businesses. Accompanied by Kylie’s outstanding photos, which she also shares via Instagram, this is one of the fastest-growing ‘fresh legs’ travel pages, and Kylie tells us that a web domain is also being developed. Kylie’s work has also been featured by the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation — not your TV network, Americans.) Check out her ABC Open page right here.
We think that our car rental customers will enjoy Kylie’s enthusiasm and gorgeous pics just as much as we do!
VroomVroomVroom Car Rental Blog: I’ve read on Travel Reviews by Kylie on Facebook that your passions are travel & photography. What ultimately inspired you to “just go for it” and become a travel writer-photographer and business reviewer?
Travel Reviews by Kylie: I recently turned 40 and I thought to myself, I have spent the majority of my adult life raising our 4 children. Now it’s my time to pursue what I love to do!
VroomVroomVroom: Tell our readers a little more about Kylie.
Kylie: I am a wife, mum of 4 and am also now working 3 days a week in Customer Service and on my days off, I am committed to this new venture. I have not always been determined, but find now that I am very determined and a stronger person. Maybe life’s lessons lean you this way! I have a loving, caring and I think funny personality, and am a little bit of a joker. And I love to help others, when I can. I enjoy the beach, bush and high country. Not a lover of the snow.
VroomVroomVroom: Has a family member or anyone else in your past influenced you to travel or write?
Kylie: Not at all. One night I was laying in bed and I thought to myself, how can I travel and get to take photos? — This is how the idea came about. I have had no writing experience previously, and I’m totally enjoying everything about this venture. Photography, travel, meeting new people, making friends … everything about it really is just unreal!
