In the past few months, it has come to fruition that I have a problem. I used to be a compulsive shoe shopper in a former life – but now I’ve developed a potentially more expensive habit; buying flights whenever I’m feeling down or stressed. On a particularly bad day last week, i bought 3!… More Finding hygge in Copenhagen
It’s taken me 7 months to finally post something about my trip to Zurich last December and the reason is pretty lame – each time I’d make an attempt, I’d get stuck trying to come up with some witty, smart title for the post. Zest of Zurich? Swiss Roll? The ideas were really going nowhere,… More Zurich
After a whirlwind of a year overseas, I returned to Sydney for no particular reason, but to seek the comforts of home for a short while (10 days). To be honest, I had concerns that once the initial excitement of seeing family and friends wore off, I’d feel like a fish out of water… More Home
While I was in Finland around 8 months ago, I decided that it’d be nice to pop into Tallinn, Estonia for a day. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that prior to arriving in Helsinki, I had no clue that Estonia was actually close to Finland (I had some uneducated impression that it was south… More Tallinn – something to Skype home about
Now that I’m presently on a short break in Sydney (STOKED to be back, might I add), I’m feeling inspired to start working through my exponentially-growing list of blog backlog – starting with a quick trip to Barcelona drafted one whole month ago.
Warning – this is a bit of an opinion piece/rant, a little (well, all) political. Not my usual forte. Read at your own peril! To say the least, it is definitely an interesting and historical time to be living and working in London right now. The mood following yesterday’s EU referendum result was a weird… More The dawn of Brexit
For anyone who has read the “About me” page, you’d have seen that this blog was created as a means of sharing my travels and whereabouts for the one year that I was going to spend abroad. If you’ve not read it, then don’t worry – it’s outdated now! That little blurb was written during… More “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference” – Robert Frost
A mere 4 days after leaving Germany, I was back again. Considering how frequently I find myself here, it’s a wonder that I’ve not really harboured a massive fondness for this country. That is, until I visited Hamburg! In a week where I’ve been feeling sourly homesick, my cousin’s invitation to come to Hamburg… More Happy Hafengeburtstag from Hamburg me hearties!
First of all, happy Mother’s Day! Even if it isn’t Mother’s Day today in your neck of the woods, you hardworking mommas all deserve to be celebrated and appreciated everyday! I could not think of a tougher gig. To my own mum, thank you for being my idol, confidante, teacher and small, but sturdy pillar… More Mum’s the word
This Monday we were graced with a bank holiday in the UK so every man and his dog took the opportunity to go somewhere for the long weekend (Btw, every public holiday is called a bank holiday here… weird, right?!). My plan to visit Amsterdam to see the tulip fields fell through, so in a… More Bringin it back to Berlin
