How To Pack Like A Minimalist

•••
Travelling with only a few possessions for prolonged periods of time has permanently changed my outlook on what it is to live (and travel) in a largely materialistic world. I’ve discovered that actually, you really don’t need many things to live happily and comfortably. Though one of the smaller, and more practical lessons I’ve learnt from traversing [...]

How to spend 24 hours in London

•••
The first time I visited London was on a stop-over from Australia to Rome and I had a measly 24 hours to explore the city. My quick stay consisted of frantically moving from one tourist attraction to the next in an attempt to jam as much into my one day in London as I possibly could.

I don’t think I slackened my defenses. I guess some years are just luckier than others, and clearly, the more you travel the more you’re at risk of at least a few fails. We’ve all proba[...]

12 Alternative Ways to Choose Your Next Travel Destination

I’m the kind of traveller who enjoys a well planned trip as much as a spontaneous and, at times, a recklessly disorganised one.
