Gabrielle George

Teenage Adventurer, World Traveller, Busker and Tramper

Hi, I’m Gabrielle

I’m fifteen years old and I’ve travelled in fifteen different countries. I’m now tramping the Te Araroa, a 3000 km long trail that runs the length of New Zealand, with the rest of my family.

I love to play the violin and any other instrument I can get my hands on. I read a truly ridiculous number of books and I’m teaching myself German.

I was born in Cairns, in the tropical far-north of Australia but haven’t lived anywhere longer than a year in my entire life!

There’s seven of us in my family, me, my parents, two sisters, and two brothers. I’m the eldest but we’re all pretty close in age. We’re all home educated and have never been to school.

To start off we just travelled around Australia. We did nine months in a tent when I was about seven. We then upgraded to a caravan and, once we got sick of that we decided to try Europe.

We liked it so much we spent eight months in twelve different countries before coming back to Australia!

As soon as we got back, we started planning our next trip –  Te Araroa.

I’m writing all about our adventures tramping the length of New Zealand, so subscribe and get ready to hear about the pretty spectacular mistakes, mishaps and probably the tantrums we’re bound to have!
