ABOUT ME

screenshot_20170212-090827_1

Welcome to Adventuress on the Run! My name is Cassie Fenton, a 25 year old from Sydney, Australia with a passion for adventure and a desire to see the world. I’m a nature enthusiast with a love for trail running and hiking; I adore exploring the great outdoors.

When I’m not gallivanting around the world, or getting lost in the mountains, I’m hitting the open road in my 1979 Volkswagen Kombi, Audrey. A large part of my wanting to travel the world stemmed from my dream to drive around Australia and I have since been restoring Audrey so that one day we can make the country-wide trip together.

I created AOTR to document my travels and adventures not just for my own recollection, but to also inspire others like me to get out there and not be afraid to chase their dreams. On my blog I share travel guides, tips, recommendations, book reviews and from my outdoor adventures in Australia. I currently work full-time in finance, but have plans to create an online platform where I am able to work remotely and still be able to travel often. I have dreams to one day have my own Bed & Breakfast to host like minded adventurer’s and share travel experiences.

If you’d like to get in touch, you can contact me here.

  5. Penang is a great trip for a foodie – Chinese, Malay and Indian all in one town. Delicious!
    And I’d say you could run around the island too!

    This is a beautiful blog. Really fantastic photos you have of your travels. I really loved your blog about Bali. I visited almost the same places as you did in Ubud. Ubud was def my favorite place in Bali. I did a cooking class up on Monkey Road..walked around the rice paddies at sunset..ate at unbelievable restaurants..and enjoyed lovely vegetarian food. Reading your blog about Bali and looking at your photos makes me want to look forward to my future of going back soon. I will be following your blog and checking through your posts when I have time next as I work on a cruise liner and don’t have a ton of time at once to read it all.

    1. I hope to! If my body will allow me 🙂 It’s a big financial commitment as well, which is the only thing troubling me at this point – I know I could do with a coach or guidance from a running club, as well as frequenting the gym and of course, ensuring I have all the necessary gear! Fingers crossed 🙂 All the best with your running, Eddie!
