Hey! I am Sammy. I am an Associate Publisher for a Travel & Leisure Publication, a Freelance Writer, ex Travel Consultant, adventurous explorer and all-round lover of the outdoors.
Back in 2010, I ventured to the Arc of the Ancient Forest on the South Eastern corner of Java to discover the true Indonesia. I came across Komodo dragons, toothless locals with sunken eyes and sun-kissed skin and one of the sharpest, most craziest reefs with glassy waves.
It is here I realised my love of falling off the commercial grid and immersing myself into colourful cultures, remote locations and adrenaline-infused travel. Being the product of a hippy and a naturalist, I grew up travelling New Zealand in the back of a van in search of music festivals and it only makes sense to fuel this passion. Now, I am an Associate Publisher for an online travel publication and a Freelance Writer.
Since my life-changing trip to Java, I have been on some epic adventures. I have:
- Hiked the snow-capped Great Wall of China
- Surfed the rocky coastline of Central America
- Found magicians on the sands of the Caribbean
- Competed and won Air New Zealand’s Great Bali Race
- Swam alone with dolphins off the atolls of the Maldives
- Listened to Lions roar outside of my tent in Namibia
And so much more!
All Days Wild is a concept, a mind-set that I continue to believe in and live by – to forever and always live as a wild one. I created this online space to not only showcase my work but to also ignite fellow adventurous souls with inspiration and motivation to live every day wild.
