5 Reasons Why You Should Move to Melbourne

•••
A fresh start in a new city is something many of us fantasise about. I for one adore the feeling of arriving to an unfamiliar place and leaving, be it weeks, months or years later, having considered it that special place we call home. I’ve lived in a few different cities now and although it hasn’t even been a year yet, I have to say that none have felt mo[...]

Top 5 croc/stinger/shark free dream swims in Queensland, Australia

•••
What's the point of going to Australia if you can’t swim in the sea? I’m sure many of us have asked ourselves that question when heading over to Queensland with the Great Barrier Reef in the north and Brisbane in the south in the middle of stinger season. Deadly jellyfish love the warm summer water in the ocean, and from October to May (just when those of us[...]

How moving abroad has changed my life for the better

More than a year ago, I left my safe space in my hometown of Copenhagen in Denmark and moved abroad to take a masters in journalism and communication in Sydney, Australia.

A Love Letter to Sydney, Australia

•••
When I graduated from university in August 2015, I didn’t know what I wanted to do as a career. What I did know was that I needed to escape. That I needed to travel far, far away from the chaotic streets of London, where I had been living for the past four years, to somewhere wild and exotic, mountainous and rugged. I chose New Zealand, because it was my mum[...]

A Kingdom for a Whale - A Travel Story from Tonga

•••
I want to see a whale. More than that - I want to swim with a whale. That was my one and only reason to travel to Tonga, an island state in the South Pacific that is one of the few places worldwide where it is possible to do exactly that.

Even if you haven't been, you probably think that you've got a good idea of Australia. Whether it's prawns on the Barbie, "G'day mate", sun-bleached surfers or sun hats with dangling corks, everyone's pretty familiar with the Aussies.

Four years ago, my best friends and I were planning our big trip around the South Pacific and of course we wanted to visit some of the beautiful islands. The only problem was that we were on a budget and we had heard that Tahiti was one of the most expensive islands on the planet. But surprise, surprise: we were wrong! The biggest expense we made that day wa[...]
