EXPLORING MY OWN BACKYARD – THE MELBOURNE FILES

thumb_IMG_9348_1024

  Until I work out a way to become a full time adventure seeker and experience collector, I’m going to have to settle for shorter, more local, backdoor (minds out of the gutter …) kind of deals. Case in point – my very random, spontaneous, YOLO moment of booking a weekend away in Melbourne. Incentive […]

Learning to Love the Commute

I write this post, curled up in foetal position in my beanie and cons with a scarf wrapped around my legs for warmth, on a bus en route to Perth. I’ve done this journey a fair few times over my four year period of living ‘Douth’ and have always weirdly enjoyed what other people tend […]

Why the people you meet while travelling are some of the best people you will ever meet.

I want to preface today’s discussion by recognising totally and completely that my relationships (in all of their delicious forms – family, friendship, romantic, sexy, platonic) are my greatest blessing + free square of my life. I have somehow attracted a tribe by my side of inspiring, kind, hilarious, beautiful + connected individuals since birth. […]

I couldn’t help but delve into another travel inspired post for you all today – mostly because I am a got a severe case of the itchy feets and wanderlustin’. Now I understand that my experiences are quite bias in some respects, as I haven’t seen nearly as much of this incredible continent as I […]

It is no secret that I fell head over heels in love with Peru. It’s my happy place. The spiritual epicenter of South America. The birthplace of fun and adventure. Cities so beautiful, it hurts. And trails and explorations that will leave you awe struck and breathless. I traveled with G Adventures across this epic […]

WHY SHITTY SITUATIONS ARE ACTUALLY THE TITS.

No one likes to be in situations that are uncomfortable or that make you feel overwhelmed, sad or angry (or a shitty little cocktail of the three). I get that. But, from my experience, it’s within these situations that you learn the most about yourself and your world. Comfort is brilliant and it yields a […]

MID YEAR MUSINGS

I just wrote the date and was flummoxed when my hand wrote a ‘6’ in the designated month box. How the FUG did we somehow arrive at the 6th month of a 12 month year? I know I’m not alone in my thinking that this year, twenny-sixteen, has absolutely flown by. Now, normally this realisation […]

Apologies for the Monday morning profanities (but, not really). In the midst of a Sunday evening Instagram scroll, these bad boy appeared on my feed and punched me right in the feels. They scarily resonated with a conversation that I’d had earlier that afternoon with some of my gals (over an amazing lunch and vino fuelled catch […]

From the moment I booked my trip, I treated every leading step in the process part of the holiday. Including, and in fact especially, the flights. Getting on that plane kickstarted my solo time of zero responsibility, zero obligations and a blissful +24hours of whatever the heck I wanted. The thing is though – up […]

What Voldemort and I have in Common

I’m not planning world domination, nor am I seeking revenge on a visually challenged, scar donning adolescent – BUT old mate Voldie and I do actually have a common thread. He calls them horcruxes, I call them life experiences. I recently came across a quote that says “travelling means leaving a piece of your heart all […]
