Meet Kelsey

My name is Kelsey Knecht and I am an American currently living abroad in Melbourne, Australia.

I was born and bred in Overland Park, Kansas, and went to school at the University of Mississippi. I spent various summers volunteering in South Africa , studying abroad in Scotland, and working at an ESL camp in Croatia. After that, I knew I wanted to teach English and live abroad.

My passions led me to Melbourne, where I teach English and EAL at a secondary college. I absolutely adore my job and get to work with both Australians and refugees from around the world! I have found my passion in teaching and a home in the English department.

This blog started as a way to keep my Kansas friends updated about my travels and life abroad, but has since blossomed into a glimpse of my journey of self discovery. Between the evolution of my personal style and tips on how to travel on a budget, I have loved documenting my acclimation to life in a whole new world.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh, the Places We See

    Your blog sounds so interesting that we just have to follow! I’m a former teacher, retired now and traveling when we can. We’ve been to England but not Scotland, so your travels there are of great interest. We’ve also never been to Australia, so I’m anxious to learn more about the people and culture there. Thanks for following Oh, the Places We See. And all the best to you both!
