I’ve been getting lots of people asking me for book recommendations and I have been sending them the list I made last year (find it here). But since I wrote this, I’ve read a lot of good books so I thought it was time for an update – especially as we’re all looking for something to do now we can’t go to the pub. Books … Continue reading Coronavirus Quarantine Reading List

After the delight of the villa, I was a little sad about leaving it to go to a hostel next. Really I had nothing to worry about because the hostel was amazing too. We stayed at the Puri Garden Hotel, and shared twin rooms. It was pouring rain when we arrived so we sheltered while we checked in and watched the skies open. The hostel … Continue reading Bali – Ubud
This post is really over due. I went to Bali in November 2017. I know. I have no excuses. We started our trip in Canggu, arriving late to the most delightful AirBnb – pool flamingo and all. It had an open plan living and dining area that made you feel both inside and outside at the same time; perfect for Bali luxury living. The bedrooms … Continue reading Bali – Canggu
I get asked a lot about which city has been my preference to live in, what the best part was, what the worst part was.

Toyko is a city of 36 million … Continue reading 10 Weird Things About Japan
It’s taken me so long to write this blog post that I’ve now actually been to Queenstown twice. I have to say it is an incredibly beautiful place; like Scotland on steroids – which makes me feel at home. I first went in September for my 24th birthday with my friend Nat. Highlights: Nat (a true blue aussie) seeing snow for the first time, skiing, … Continue reading Queenstown
When you move to a city, where you live is decision number one. If you’re going to chuck down $1400 on a bond (deposit) then you want it to be somewhere you’re actually going to, well, enjoy. You can say to yourself, ‘oh it doesn’t really matter because I can always move’, or ‘I’m in Sydney so I’ll love anywhere because it’s hot and sunny’. … Continue reading Suburb Guide to Sydney
This is a theory I developed a few years ago. I have managed to convince a few people too. Now, I have done no ACTUAL research on this but, come on, this is the internet and I can write whatever I want. So, you’re young and wild and free, but time is ticking on and you’re maybe starting to think about what your life is … Continue reading I have a theory about men, commitment, and umbrellas.
