How many times have I written one of these? Sometimes I try to be secretive, but clearly with this website – it it legit my name soooo lets not go that route.

My name is Jana and I am a (late) 20s on and off blogger, powerlifter, streamer and person-who-likes-the-idea-of-being-social-but-isnt. I was born and raised in Aotearoa (New Zealand) in Auckland, but have moved around for most of my life. At the age of 17 I moved to Canterbury, and that’s where I’ve lived ever since (wow just realized as I’m typing, more than 10 years – The longest in any location).

I have a passion for the environment – in a way that I went to university at the age of 21 (after dropping out of highschool at 15) so I could learn more about environmental issue, NZ legislation and to obtain a job in the field. I think I do pretty good job.. However my dream car is still a dirty great big 1972 Chrysler Valiant Regal VH Wagon. If you know, you know.

This place isn’t here so potential employers can find me, judge my terrible writing and not employ me (trust me, the time I spend on a blog post is nothing compared to the time I spend on report writing on compliance issues!). It’s just a place for me to talk about my experiences – mostly travel and general “life” stuff. I want to talk to others, too and be a part of the blogging community again.

Sometimes I’ll post TMI health stuff, relating to PCOS or weightloss. That’ll be awkward if you know me in real life, but you can skip past those posts.

Other times I’ll post reviews on trips, or some helpful tips about visiting other countries. Maybe I’ll review some skin care (except my pores are huge and nothing is working so far so they’d only be a list of negative reviews).

An important thing to note is that you’ll find my writing style casual, laid back, and yeah I’ll probably slip a “lol!” in a post. That’s because I’m writing these posts to have fun, not to generate money or get as many keywords in one sentence so my blog reaches #1 on Google.

I really hope you’ll stick around and comment on some posts! I really love reading new blogs, and appreciate some banter!
