Charlotte is originally from The Netherlands, but has visited Australia several times starting in 2007 with a road trip from Brisbane to Cairns. In 2009, Charlotte sailed a boat across the Gulf of Carpentaria, crossing the coast near the Gilbert River Mouth before heading inland towards Cairns. Her mathematical background helped her in steering through the rough waters and finding her way back to Cairns. In 2017, she decided to make Australia her home and she has since resided in North Sydney with her partner and numerous houseplants.
