Tash Thompson is a freelance Journalist from New Zealand. Born into a family of travellers, she has spent much of her adult life attempting to find the cure to itchy feet – a calling which has seen her work in Southern Italy as a rickshaw Tour Guide, nanny in Paris, live in regional New Zealand and travel around the world.
The best lesson Tash has learnt from living abroad is there is no better source of information than a local. Celebrating this notion, Tash Abroad Blog looks beyond the top 10 tourist sites to showcase the history, culture and best kept secrets of a destination. Tash is currently based in Melbourne, Australia.
Tash has an honours degree in psychology, a bachelors degree in music and previously worked as resident arts and entertainment Reporter for The Gisborne Herald. She has co-authored two scientific papers on psychology and is a passionate environmentalist.
