Breathtaking Iceland

2017 has absolutely flown by as usual and also as usual I don’t think I’ve updated my blog once. Oops. Among a million things that have happened already this year, I turned 30. To celebrate I had a beautiful birthday dinner with my nearest and dearest and as a gift to myself I took aContinue reading “Breathtaking Iceland”

Northwest North America

In June last year I went on a road trip through Northwest USA, into Canada and back down into the American Midwest, and it was one of my most favourite trips I’ve ever taken. America is such a vast, beautiful and rich country geographically – there’s so much to see and do and the landscapeContinue reading “Northwest North America”

I love a sunburnt country

I recently spent two weeks travelling through the Northern Territory and I had such an amazing time. I had been to Darwin before once for a work conference but it was in the middle of summer – hot, humid, muggy, uncomfortable, hot, sweaty, balmy and did I mention hot? Otherwise known as notaverygoodtime. But thisContinue reading “I love a sunburnt country”

The Hexagon

While we were researching our trip to New Zealand we came across a company called Canopy Camping, an Air BnB style agency that promotes eco “glamping” experiences. There are sites all over the North and South Islands ranging from fancy tents to cave dwellings to vintage caravans. There were so many awesome spots to chooseContinue reading “The Hexagon”

Milford Sound

A place so spectacular that it deserved its own post <3 It’s difficult to describe how incredible my Milford Sound experience was. We cruised on a small boat through the Sound, surrounded by 400 million year old mountains and low, thick cloud. There were hundreds of gushing waterfalls and everything was covered in lush greeneryContinue reading “Milford Sound”

I’ve always wanted to go to New Zealand but I also figured it was so close to home and easy to get to that I’d get there eventually so I’ve been more focused on visiting places further away. That was until Air NZ had a really excellent sale earlier in the year and all ofContinue reading “Beautiful New Zealand”

The purple rainbow

It’s no secret how much I love the sky. Clouds, sunsets, storms – all of it – I’m obsessed. But even for a self-confessed sky-addict, there comes a sight every so often that still manages to take my breath away. This purple-pink double rainbow across Sydney last week did exactly that. What a glorious wayContinue reading “The purple rainbow”

Helensburgh Tunnel

I’ve been to this beautiful abandoned tunnel before, but just before this most recent visit there had been 2 days of rain, which totally changed the experience and beauty of this special spot. Everything was so luscious and green and there was trickling water everywhere. A truly magical experience and quite a stark contrast toContinue reading “Helensburgh Tunnel”
