Kristie May

Kristie was born in Australia, and spent the majority of her childhood living in South East Queensland.

As a child, she travelled with her family locally, and to New Zealand.

She began independently exploring the world in 2006, and has lived and worked in various parts of Australia and the UK.  

Kristie’s typical travelling style was solo and group tours, however this has now changed to family travel since her daughter was born in 2020.

Kristie started her first online business in 2009 called Lingerie and Gowns.  

Kristie now operates 6 online businesses, all with slightly different content and audiences.
