These monthly recaps give me the chance to keep you updated on what I’ve been up to, where I’ve been, and what’s to come on the blog. It also gives me a chance to share more about myself, my interests, and current obsessions. September has flown by in an absolute blur. I feel like the
I am fascinated by what people pack when they travel. So, I thought I’d share what I always pack in my carry-on bag.
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
I’ve been wanting to create a regular recap/update series for a while now, but I wasn’t quite sure where to begin. So I’m going to trial this for the next few months and see how it goes. The monthly recaps will give me the chance to keep you updated on what I’ve been up to,
Scotland has been on my list of must-see places since I was a kid. I’ve always felt proud of my Scottish heritage, and have been keen to see where my ancestors came from. Scotland has a rich history, and so many amazing locations to visit. There was no way we could fit everything in, but
The humble airplane armrest: who is entitled to them, and is there an etiquette to abide by? Is everyone on the same page here? Controversial, I know. A quick Google search leads me to believe that etiquette exists. Apparently, those lucky enough to sit in the window seat get their own armrest. Although the aisle
I have craved a visit to Ireland for as long as I can remember. The Emerald Isle. Doesn’t it just sound like a magical and wondrous place? Picture rolling hills, lush fields, and sheer cliffs edging around the two countries that make up Ireland as we know it. We wanted to see as much as
Due to the type of travelling holidays we prefer to take (read: long Winter wonderland trips staying in nice hotels), we don’t actually travel that much. Most of our year is spent saving up our money and annual leave for our next big adventure, and working full-time office jobs. We don’t go out very often,
One of the things we were most excited about doing in Western Australia was taking a trip to Rottnest Island to meet the Quokka. A Quokka is a little critter that calls the islands off Western Australia home. They look like a cross between a wallaby and a smaller animal like a rat or rabbit.
Three things we really wanted to do during our visit to WA: catch up with family, check out the gorgeous range of beaches, and explore a cave or two. Jewel Cave was at the top of our list. So, during our epic South-Western Australia Road Trip, we were sure to make our way to Jewel
