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…

Colours of Marrakech

Colours of Marrakech

Marrakech has been long on my wanderlust list of places to visit and we managed to squeeze in five days on our recent trip. Walking through the labyrinth of the medina, you’re instantly confronted with an overload to all of your senses, which is intensified by the overwhelming heat.  Exotic sights, intoxicating smells, unique sounds…

Colours of Hong Kong

I am no stranger to colour in both my style and photography, and I truly believe that being surrounded by colour can change the way you think and feel. I’ve always considered myself to be a somewhat tech geek and have tried many different cameras in my time, but no one has been able to…

Travel Tips for Solo Female Travellers

Tips for Girls Travelling on Their Own

I’m often asked what it’s like to travel on my own to foreign cities where English isn’t the lingua franca; I just have one word for it – liberating. I’ll try not to romanticize the idea for you because it certainly isn’t an Eat, Pray, Love situation where you book your one-way ticket to spiritual and…

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…


2016 – A Year of Change

As this will be the last post for the year I thought I would hop on the bandwagon of reflecting on the year I’ve had. 2016 has proven to be such a turning point for my life – an abundance of exciting experiences have been thrown at me, people have come and gone (mostly for the…

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…

Bangkok Moon Bar

Discover Bangkok in 2 Days

I arrived in Bangkok four days earlier than the rest of the #ContikiAsia16 crew (read part one of the trip here) to explore a city that most would have a love hate relationship with. Picture gridlocked traffic at almost all hours of the day, thousands of temples that can be found on every second corner and…

Ovolo Southside Hong Kong

Hotel Hopping with Ovolo Group in Hong Kong

I know you’ve all noticed that I’ve been spending a lot of time in Hong Kong as of late – it’s almost becoming a second home to me with my second family quickly growing in the city (you know who you are). In just two short trips to the concrete jungle, I’ve met such a…

A Weekend In Wine Country

  When the life of running the interminable rat race gets the better of you, lets face it; with all the social media and digital stimulation we have engulfing every waking moment of our existence – sometimes you just want to voluntarily submit yourself to a digital detox. Unfortunately, in a bloggers line of work…
