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
I’ve developed an unhealthy obsession with the way some Europeans make their bed. In other words, I’ve become a fan of the ‘one bed, two duvets’ method. The first time we visited Europe, we were a little confused by the bedding situation. It’s a little weird, right? We thought they had forgotten to give us
Travel has taught me so much about myself, my relationships, and the world around me.

Don’t even get me started on the lack of sympathy from friends, family, or colleagues who haven’t just been jetting across the world themselves, either. I get it. Really I do. But when you’ve just spent days, weeks, or even
Like it or not, Christmas is just around the corner. Whether you spend your time at home with family and friends, or adventuring abroad; Christmas is a magical time of year, and one that I always look forward to. Yes, it is about love, joy, sharing, and coming together. But let’s be real — it’s
Although I’m not hugely into labels, anyone who knows me can attest to the fact that I have an introverted personality. Until recently, I always thought of it as a negative quality: …I’m so shy, I don’t like big crowds, I’m sensitive, small talk doesn’t come naturally to me, and I prefer to stay home
