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 60 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.

As a travel and lifestyle writer Nicole Leigh West is published internationally, including for Vacations and Travel Magazine, International Dive Magazine, Remote Lands, The Huffington Post, Lifehack, Sandstorm Magazine, momondo, Simply Holiday Deals, Indie Travel Podcast and KAYAK Travel Hacker.

As a Reiki practitioner, mentor, choreographer and live show director, Nicole is dedicated to fostering self-growth, creativity and inspiration to succeed on unique 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, entertainment, conservation and personal development.

When she’s not at home on the beaches of the Gold Coast with family and a succulent tribe of friends, she’s diving, climbing, twirling and tasting her way through a new destination. Her passions include reading, diving, swimming, music festivals, medieval everything, climbing anything, meditation, self-exploration, fairies, cats, magic, mystery and mayhem – in all it’s colourful forms.
