Even before I ever really learnt to drink wine, I had a romanticised dream of one day cruising through the French countryside, exploring beautiful chateaux while sampling glasses of French wine in situ. I was fortunate enough to realise this experience last December in Bordeaux, a place that’s ubiquitous for world class red wine.
Happy St Patrick’s Day, from Dublin! I am totally on a roll with the blogging – 4 posts in 1 week 😄 But yet, I’m still as much behind as I was 1 month ago… Must .. Persevere .. Last November, in the exciting lead up to another European Christmas, I took a quick trip … More The hills are alive in Salzburg and Hallstatt
In the last few months I’d become a bit regretful of the fact that I hadn’t spent enough time exploring the UK. Though it never really tends to rank high on many expats immediate travel bucketlist, there are quite a few places where one could do a day trip from London. Two such places are … More Day trips from London – Rye, Dover, Bath, Stonehenge, Bray & Edinburgh
Music is one of my biggest loves and the live music scene in Europe is a real treat for anyone with such an interest. As Australia is quite geographically isolated, foreign acts don’t always arrive at our doorstep all the time which means we aren’t exactly spoilt for choice. On the other hand, tours of … More 2 days in Bavaria
A week ago, I finished up my contract in London and have embarked on a period of funemployment as I prepare to permanently return to Australia in April (sad face). One thing I vowed to do once funemployed was to write like no tomorrow to get this page up to date, but alas, life has … More I want to be a part of it, New York New York!

Today I woke up to a flurry of snow outside my window in London – uncomfortable and cold as … More NYC, continued.
Before I launch into my travel tales, it’d be remiss to overlook the fact we’ve just ticked into a new lunar year yesterday – So, happy year of the rooster to you all! May you find prosperity and happiness in whatever comes your way 🙂 And a belated Happy Australia Day to my fellow country … More Adventures across the Atlantic
Facebook has a lovely feature reminding you where you were on a given day in years past – also a stellar way of subtly confronting you with how much you’ve aged and how much weight you’ve gained! When I first started drafting this post (pre-Christmas lol) I had woken up with a notification that that particular day … More Moments in Paris
Hello and Happy 2017! 😀 I’ve come to realise it’s been awhile since I’ve last posted – whilst this blog has not been too far from my mind, the chaos of travel, work, a bout of the winter vomitting bug (yuck) and the Christmas silly season have been completely consuming these past few weeks/months. Irregardless, I am … More Greetings!
Hola! It was long overdue, but i was recently able to pay a visit to Spain’s capital, Madrid. It was a pretty full on weekend – thankfully I had gone to Essen the weekend prior to refuel on energy and TLC, courtesy of my German family! Em and I originally booked to go Madrid as … More Madness in Madrid
