I’m Martina, traveller, writer, explorer.

I’m a freelance writer with a passion for experiencing the world. I want to do, see and eat as many new things as possible. The world has more to offer than we can ever fit into a lifetime, but I’m going to try.

In 2016 I hit a goal I’ve been aiming for for the last few years – 30 countries before I’m 30! I’m now on over 35 countries and I don’t plan on stopping soon.

My favourite? Don’t be silly – that’s an impossible question to answer!

I live all over the world, but home will always be in far south New South Wales, in the Australian bush. I’m lucky to have a home that would be a holiday destination for many, and I love it to bits.

I’d love to hear from you, so drop me a line at hello @ martina donkers dot com, or leave a comment anywhere around the site.

I’ve been a few places, but I’ve got a lot more to see…

    I still remember the first time I found out about Machu Picchu. It was 2007 and I had just started university. I was living on campus and making friends with my next-door neighbour, a science student like me named Hannah. I went into her room one day and saw a poster of the most amazing […]

    You Have To See This Incredible Bird Sanctuary in Honduras

    Just up the road from a gorgeous little town in western Honduras is the incredible bird sanctuary Macaw Mountain. It was an absolute highlight of my time in Central America and it’s absolutely somewhere you should go on your next adventure. Want more details?

    This surrealist jungle garden is from another world

    Or, I found the ruins of Rivendell and it’s in Mexico. About a day’s travel north-east of Mexico City is a place that feels like it fell off the pages of a fantasy novel. Like some fantastical movie set come to life. Like a vivid painting you assumed sprang from a painter’s imagination, only here […]
