Australian girl who’s living on the road, photographing and telling her story as she goes in hope to inspire a world of travel and adventure!

Grew interest in photography at a very young age, and instantly knew that it would always be a big part of my life. I started travelling with the motivation to teach myself how to get creative behind the lens & how to edit all my own images. For the past three years I have been living on the road with my partner @kyle_hunter, exploring over 35 countries incl. most of Europe, Jordan, Oman, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, America, Myanmar + many more. With so many countries still on our bucket list, we have no plans to slow down anytime soon!

Forever with a camera in my hand, my hope is to keep continuing to bring you all daily travel inspiration. Thank you for the on going support, and being a reader of my blog! I wouldn’t be able to chase these crazy dreams of mine without you all!

    Planning is still underway (last minute and as we go is the way we do things) flying into Madrid some day trips around to Toledo and Salamanca then to Barcelona for New Years. Then hopefully can work our way up north for San Sebastiรกn (the idea of the amusement park has me that excited) then some cycling in the north around Bilbao and across to Santiago de compostela. Down through Portugal unsure where to head other then visiting a friend in Lisbon then definitely time around Seville (now Ronda aswell from your incredible pics and review and Granada). That’s a very basic plan and we will see how we go especially with the weather (hoping it isn’t too chilly!) Can’t wait! X

    Hello, I was just wondering if you’ve always had the Canon 5D or if you could reckon an alternative as I’m going travelling myself and need a good camera but that is so pricey.

    1. haylsaway

      December 29, 2016 at 9:34 pm

      Hey! Yes all my travel photos have been taken with my 5d.. most standard cameras will take a decent photo though so don’t stress. Just do a bit of research before purchasing ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Hello beautiful,
    Your work is amazing, are you now making a living from your pictures ?
    I bought your presets, and even though I manage to use Lightroom, I don’t understand how to use your presets to obtain a result close to the one you have on your pictures. Please HELP.
    Thank you Hayls and keep on shining


    1. haylsaway

      September 7, 2017 at 11:31 pm

      Hey aude!

      Thanks for the message! It can be a little tricky but I recommend just tweaking the settings can help. Mainly shadows, highlights, contrast, exposure etc. you can also play with split toning as well. Try putting a little green or yellow shadow tone ๐Ÿ™‚ also with the colours. That can be the most tricky when using presets. Maybe take a look at some tutorials online, may help! I am putting together a new set of presets that hopefully will work a bit better with photos. Still all a learning curve for me as a photo editor. Thank you for purchasing my presets means the wold!

    Hey! What do you use for your under-over water shots, is it a gopro and go dome? Do you use anything else like the dive filters or anti fog inserts? How do you end up with no water droplets?!
    Thanks for sharing your amazing photos, been following for ages and your work just keeps getting better and better.

    Hi Hayley, I am so in love with your blog & instagram! You have given me and my partner a kick up the bum to plan our second campervan trip (our 1st being Scotland so we could take the dog). Which leads me onto my question.. would it be possible to take a dog through Europe? Also what kind of campervan did you use for Europe?

    Keep posting xxxx

    1. haylsaway

      January 6, 2018 at 12:14 am

      Ah thank you!! Youโ€™re amazing! Yes I saw so many people traveling with their dogs ๐Ÿ™‚ we used an old converted van which was pretty basic but so good! Xxx

      1. Holly Rands

        January 8, 2018 at 11:55 am

        Ahh great stuff, thatโ€™s amazing! Thats we were planning on buying! Have you listed anywhere the route that you did? Or maybe listed the countries just as a guide before we start planning xxx
