Sydney observations from a first-timer…

Sydney observations from a first-timer…

After spending the last five months in the sunny part of the world, I’ve noticed a few things here and there that I thought were funny, weird or just interesting and so wanted to share my Sydney observations for your amusement… People - If you think Australia is just white people and aboriginals you’d be...

The very abrupt ending to my Australian adventure

The very abrupt ending to my Australian adventure

And so, dear readers, I write to you with the news that my Australian adventure is coming to an end through need rather than choice. A lot has happened since you last stopped by. Despite saying I was ready to leave the city and country by the end of February after my work contract ended,...

The emotional journey to Australia Part 2: The Big Reveal

I’ve written just 2 posts since I arrived in Australia 3 months ago; this will be my third and I confess that I have missed writing greatly. You may wonder what the hold up has been; after all, I’m in an entirely different continent experiencing a vast range of different situations and emotions. I have...

A day out at Palm Beach

A day out at Palm Beach

If you don’t already know it, Palm Beach is one of Australia’s most famous beaches for two very good reasons. It’s where the fictional soap/drama Home and Away is filmed (extremely popular throughout the UK and Europe) and it’s quiet, pristine and usually reserved for the wealthier class of people.

The emotional journey to Australia Part I

The emotional journey to Australia Part I

I suppose like all good stories I should start at the beginning. Except, given that I have no current direction and feel so lost, the beginning seems all but a myth. I’m struggling; greatly. In ways that words could not hope to convey. I, like many others have, are and will, am going through the...

Confession: I don’t want to go to Australia

Confession: I don’t want to go to Australia

Being that I write online; the internet affords me the luxury of lying or at the very least; pretending to be something or someone I’m not. And yet, despite this, I have decided to be open with you more than ever. You see, I don’t want to go to Australia. Correction, somewhere deep inside my...

I’ve quit my job to begin a life of travel

I’ve quit my job to begin a life of travel

It’s a pretty bold title isn’t it?  Happily I can say that it’s all true.  Today was my last day of work.  After 6 years with the same soul-destroying company, I have finally quit my job to begin a life of indefinite travel. I feel like that’s all I want to say right now and...

Win a 2 night stay in Saint James backpacker hostel London!

I’m a lousy backpacker because: I like my sleep

I’m a lousy backpacker because: I like my sleep

You know that whole philosophy of ‘you can sleep when you’re dead’ that does on the rounds online when people are trying to inspire you to get the most out of your day?  Yeah, well if I don’t sleep, you will wish you were dead because my Gemini psycho twin sister will visit; you’ll need...

The ultimate West Coast of USA road trip!

The ultimate West Coast of USA road trip!

It seems such a long time ago that I began looking into a West Coast road trip to the USA and ended up in Africa (long story) but it still remains high on the bucket list.  People always discount the US as a travel/backpack destination but I find it a fascinating country; both because of...
