So I think it’s time for a seasonal bucket list to get you inspired for the sweltering months ahead of us, and if you live in the northern hemisphere, maybe it will just fill  you with a longing for long summer days and travel to the great southern land.  Read More

Exploring Cradle Mountain

A boat cabin on the edge of Dove Lake

The drive to Cradle Mountain from Hobart was a hell of a lot longer than I thought it was going to be. It was also the windiest, most curvy road I’ve ever driven on, which made me regret not bring travel sickness medication.

Explore Kings Canyon

The view of the canyon walls from the velley

Over the four day Easter break, I jumped in the car with my crazy friend, and we hit the road bound for Kings Canyon.

The Journey Begins

An image of the cost of Tasmania

Hi there!

My name is Emma and I’m a high school teacher. I love my job, but I have a little secret…

…I’m bored.

Over the past few years I have found myself  falling into a slump where I do the same things day in, day out and I hate it. I’m feeling under challenged and under stimulated, so one night over a glass of wine I started creating a bucket list of things I want to do and see and experience in life and… Read More
