My name is Kate McInerny. I am a 30 something years old. I am from Australia and I picked up the travel bug when I was 14 years old.  I love to travel, because it reminds me of how diverse the world is. I love having the opportunity to immerse myself in cultures that are so different from my own.  Being able to witness how 'normal' is so different depending on geography.
