Chasing Emma at the entrance of Buda Castle.

I sincerely apologise for the rant ahead. I remember when I stumbled across my first travel blog almost 6-7 years ago. I can’t remember what I was Googling (I think it was something about hiking to Machu Picchu) but I became enthralled with the… Continue Reading “Travel Photos in Flowy Dresses – I Hate Them!”

Round Up: March, April, May

Wow, it’s really been a hot minute since I’ve done one of these. I haven’t really got an excuse except that I forgot. Seeing as the last couple of months haven’t been too exciting, this will be a quick one.

Good luck, I’ll see you again

Today’s the day. Today is one of my best friend’s last days in town. Tomorrow she leaves for greener pastures (or is it redder sands?) in Broome. And while I am excited for this next adventure in her life, I can’t help but feel… Continue Reading “Good luck, I’ll see you again”

Meet Baxter Jones. The newest love of my life and the best dog friend anyone could ask for.

Disconnecting from Instagram for a Week

Wednesday morning last week I was browsing my podcast app looking for something new to listen to when I came across Crappy to Happy – 3 Mindful Minutes by Cass Dunn. I don’t usually go for these types of podcasts because I find them… Continue Reading “Disconnecting from Instagram for a Week”

Chasing Emma at the Trephina Gorge Ridgetop Walk Lookout

Tomorrow I embark on my first 30 day health challenge. From tomorrow, Thursday November 12th, I am giving up soft drink. It all started when I watched Matt Cutt’s Ted Talk Try Something New for 30 Days. In this video he talks about how… Continue Reading “30 Day Challenge: No Soft Drink”
