Australian author of fiction novel, ‘The Gypsy Trail’, Nicole Leigh West caught the travel bug early on in life, via childhood outback camping trips. Since her first taste of living overseas, in Japan as a professional dancer at just 17, she’s explored more than 65 countries. Globetrotting unleashed a passion for writing novels and first-hand adventures have contributed to a portfolio of internationally published travel and lifestyle articles, across more than a decade as a professional writer. Her work is published internationally, including for Vacations and Travel Magazine, International Dive Magazine, Remote Lands, The Huffington Post, Lifehack and KAYAK Travel Hacker.

As a Reiki practitioner, mentor and choreographer, Nicole is dedicated to fostering self-growth and inspiring people to succeed on individual life paths. She’s the founder of health and wellness site, The Spiritual Room and regularly contributes articles to magazines and online publications, about fitness, dance, holistic health and personal development.

When she’s not at home on the beaches of the Gold Coast, she’s diving, climbing, twirling and tasting her way through a new destination.
