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. In reality I have loved them all, and the friends and memories I have from each city are different but equally cherished (lol lame). But the best thing I got, came from living abroad in general because it teaches you … Continue reading What you learn when you live abroad.
Did you know I went to Japan recently? Did you know I loved it? Well buckle down, because it was a wild ride, and I’m going to share it with you. Japan’s got some weird things going on, and surprisingly they’re not the things I thought would be weird. Lack of bins Japan is the cleanest place ever.

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
Shortly after starting my stint in New York, I wrote this blog post on what you should do with visitors or if you go on holiday there. Well, after having completed my year, I feel like I have a better idea of the best places to go. I get asked recommendations all the time, and instead of giving a huge list, I put together this … Continue reading A comprehensive list of places to go in New York.
This advert actually came out a while ago but it’s still sitting there in my favourite of 2017 so far. It’s one of those ones that still pops into my mind every now and then – which is basically what everyone aims for when making something like this. I must also confess I have browsed the Contiki website more than a few times since watching … Continue reading Advert of the Week – Contiki
Roughly 9 months ago I was sitting in the airport, my hands shaking a little with the weight of the decision I had made. After a 2 week pit-stop at home, I had repacked my bags to start all over again in Australia. I had just spent a year away from my friends and family, so I wasn’t quite sure why I was doing it … Continue reading The 10 stages of what moving to Australia is really like.
I never intended to go to Chicago. I’ve been before and was not desperate to go back so it wasn’t on my list for the year. But a friend in need is a friend indeed. And my lovely friend Liora had some people cancel on her, so I stepped in and booked flights to Chicago…on my phone…on a bus to Vermont…drunk. I know I know, … Continue reading Chicago
You know when you wake up with horrific sunburn and your skin feels like sand paper on the sheets? Well that was all of us on day 2. The sun was shining though, so that meant another trip to the beach. Boiled egg in hand (thanks mumma muller), off we trotted down the tropical roads to find a postcard perfect spot. Look at us all … Continue reading Bermuda (pt2)
