To me, Finland always seemed like one of those faraway places that only existed in the pages of a book. Like, when you crawl to the very back of your wardrobe and find yourself in Narnia. For a while there, Finland was my Narnia. Well, Finnish Lapland, to be precise. A place I very much
Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and a fantastic entry point to Scandinavia. It’s one of those amazing places that has such a wonderful mix of old town charm and modern city vibes. One minute you’re wandering the busy streets, full of eager shoppers bustling about; the next you find yourself in the historic old town,
I’m always on the hunt for new road trip destinations in Victoria. I stumbled upon this blog post a few months ago and instantly added the Warburton Redwood Forest to my list.

Like many Australian travellers heading to Europe, we recently found ourselves with a short stopover in Singapore. A seven-hour stopover, to be precise. In hindsight, we should have made the most of our time, and stayed the night there, exploring the city. But by the time we really thought about this, our flights were already
For the past three years, we’ve spent the Christmas period abroad. First in Lake Louise, then Quebec City, and finally in London town. Being overseas during Christmas can be difficult. It’s a little isolating when you’re in an unfamiliar place, in a different time zone from friends and family, and with unfamiliar people all around.
Last weekend we hired a car. Mostly to go to IKEA, but also to get out of the city for a bit. Living (and working) in the concrete jungle, I often crave getting out of Melbourne and away from the tall buildings and large crowds. I was keen to go for a big walk in
