Doors from Around the World

I don’t know about you, but whenever I come across a cool looking door, I can’t help but take a photo. There is something a little bit magical and alluring about doors. Perhaps it is the possibility of a new adventure or a surprise waiting on the other side.

My Super Seven Photos

I was recently scouring the internet reading various travel and lifestyle blogs when I stumbled across the Super 7 Tag. This was a tag back in 2011/2012 (you can see I went DEEP into the archives on some blogs), and basically all that is required is finding a photo that fits each category. I felt particularly inspired as I read these posts because I could clearly see the photos in my head that I would have chosen had I been blogging at the time of this tag. I decided that since time is not linear, why not do my own (late, late, LATE) response to this tag?

Round Up: January and February 2021

Hey everybody! It’s been a minute since I last did one of these round up posts. In fact, I completely skipped January for no other reason than pure laziness. For that reason I’ve decided to combine January and February this time around and get myself back on track posting to this site.

Wandering at Wiggles Waterhole

As mentioned in some of my previous posts, the Red Centre has recently received a lot of much needed rain, and as a result many of the surrounding waterholes that are usually dirt dry are full. One of the little known waterholes in Alice is called Wiggles Waterhole. Unlike many of the other waterholes, this one is only located about 20 minutes out of town.

Bucket List: Ride a Ferris Wheel

Have you ever forced yourself to do something even though you are scared boneless? I’ve done quite a few things that have made me feel this way, but the most recent was last week when I decided to take a ride in a ferris wheel.

SUP Boarding at Ellery Creek Big Hole

If you’re anything like me, you have probably seen all of those amazing photos of people magestically gliding across the water on stand-up paddle boards. Seeing these photos ignited a dream for me and SUP boarding became a hot item on my bucket list.

2020 in Review: Chasing Emma Through Photos

I think it’s fair to say that 2020 was nothing like anyone of us could have imagined it would be. It really came out of the left field (did I use that spring reference correctly?) and has affected so many people in so many different ways.

I am blessed to say that I have been fortunate to live in Australia in an area outside of Melbourne and Sydney and haven’t been affected too terribly COVID-19. That’s not to say I haven’t experienced my share of ups and downs over the past 12 months, but it had been comparatively smooth sailing.

Meet Baxter Jones

Baxter Jones chilling in the garden

I was so gosh darn excited I could hardly sit still in the car as we drove out to the local animal shelter. I was finally going to have a dog. Ever since I moved out of home I have wanted my own dog. Unfortunately, apartments with tiny back yards, no grass, and exposed to the hot desert sun all day are not the best environment for a dog. When I moved into a house with an actual yard I got excited and began planning on a dog. Despite my enthusiasm, it took over a year for me to finally bring a new doggy friend home. Why? I put it down to the fact that the right dog just hadn’t come up yet.

Round Up: November 2020

After the fast pace of October, November was a much more relaxed month. It provided plenty of time for personal reflection and thoughts of Christmas.

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 to be a bit too woo woo for me. You know what I mean right? The fake sounding voice, the calming music in the back ground and the constant reminder to “just take a breath.” However, I decided to give this one a go on account that each episode was only 3-4minutes long. That’s a manageable amount of woo woo. Given that I am seriously struggling with body image atm, the most recent episode which coincidentally was on this very topic seemed like a good place to start.
