Aside from the fact that I had never properly watched Forrest Gump from start to finish before, Vietnam was a place of first experiences for both my partner and myself. In fact I knew very little about Vietnam and its history prior to visiting in August aside from the fact that it was a place…

Colours of Vietnam

I used to always find myself taking thousands upon thousands of pictures whilst on trips but never finding the time to take them off my cameras, let alone transferring them across to my phone. It’s not uncommon for me to go through my hard drives and find images that I didn’t know I had, just…

Colours of Italy

This might be a slight (ok, maybe overt) humble brag but I’ve always loved receiving the feedback from others that they love my photos and the way I’ve curated my images. As someone who hasn’t had any formal training – unless you count hours of YouTube tutorials and reviews – I’ve come a long way…

5 Must See Places in Bali for First Timers

Am I still allowed to call myself Australian if I haven’t been to Bali? Thankfully that is no longer in question as I finally booked myself on a trip over Christmas and New Years with my other half and boy, did I love it. I’ve always had these preconceived notions that Bali was the place…

New Zealand with Princess Cruises

I know you all probably think that I’ve spent the last four months travelling – you’d be correct in that assumption and what a few months it has been! This last stint of mine was not an intended trip as this was a holiday that the family had planned (sans me), however daddy dearest was unable…

Contiki Asia 16 – Part Two

It’s been only 3 weeks since I said farewell to my Contiki family and instead of keeping you all hanging (as I know you all are) for the second part – I’m writing this on the plane journey over to my next Asia adventure in Bali. If you haven’t yet read the first part of…
