About Me

Welcome to World of Ahimsa! My name is Hannah, I’m a 24 year old with a love of vegan food and travel. I have created this space to share my travel and lifestyle tips, recipes and photography.

I’m originally from the deep south of New Zealand, where it’s often cold and wet, so I spend most of my time now in Koh Phangan, Thailand.

My first overseas trip was to Fiji, and I turned five years old there, but it wasn’t until I was in my first year of university that I was really bitten by the travel bug. Sitting in my dorm, staring out the window at the student city below, I knew in my bones that five years in Law School wasn’t for me.

So, I finished my degree in 2.5 years and studied abroad in Beijing and Buenos Aires. I started writing a travel column for my local newspaper during that time, under the name ‘Travelholic Hannah’. After studying I worked as a travel agent and used the industry knowledge and discounts to book my first round-the-world trip in 2014.

Since 2015, I have been based in Thailand and am now studying Thai yoga and massage part-time. I hope you feel inspired to travel more, try something new and eat more plants!
