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 [...]

A Rain Room Has Arrived In Melbourne

•••
Known to many as the culture capital of Australia, Melbourne is a hub for all things arty and experiential. This August sees the premier of a monumental creative installation, never before seen in the City. Having drawn over half a million visitors across LA, New York, Shanghai and London, the globally significant work has now arrived to the Jackalope Pav[...]

Bucharest: the Eastern European City for Creatives and Music Lovers

•••
Bucharest is a place of fascinating contrasts. Medieval churches and monasteries stand beside Art Nouveau phenomena. Monstrous 1930s’ concrete towers overshadow delicate French Baroque, and 21st century modernity sits somewhere awkwardly between it all. For me, the streets of Bucharest are like a feast for the eyes and a rather perplexing stimulus for the mi[...]

6 Things You Realise When You Return Home From Traveling

•••
For many seasoned travellers, the most emotionally challenging part of travelling can be returning home. Why? Because reality has this sneaky way of hitting you like a short, sharp slap in the face and disappointing you like your first high school boyfriend. Even if you get to the point on the road where you feel ready to go back - craving a routine, fa[...]

A Backpacker Meets 5* Resort Luxury: What I Learnt Staying At Shangri-La Mactan

•••
I’m a do-er. A jam-everything-in-so-I-don’t-get-FOMO kind of traveller. Someone who would choose a sketchy night bus to combine travelling with a (poor) night’s accommodation – and, because I haven’t learnt yet, immediately follow it with a day of intense sightseeing. There’s a few downsides to this kind of travelling though. The most obvious being an[...]

3 Ways You Can Help Stop Rainforest Deforestation

•••
Even if you're at the opposite side of the world to South America's Amazon Rainforest, or maybe have not even touched foot on the continent at all, it doesn't matter - you can still help to prevent the devastating destruction of the world's largest forest from wherever you may be. The Amazon is one of the most bio-diverse habitats in the world, a refu[...]

The Rise of ‘Eco-Anxiety’ and How It Could Shape the Future

•••
For me, it struck hardest watching David Attenborough's latest series 'Our Planet'. The polar bears struggling to survive, the altered migration paths of whole species and the devastating decline of wildlife by 60% across the world. It filled me with overwhelming guilt and disgust at not only myself, but the whole human race. However it was one of Attenb[...]

5 Things To Love About Tasmania

•••
I'm always slightly cautious when I hear too many good things about a destination I'm about to visit. I just don't want to get my expectations too high and, without sounding ungrateful, end up deflated when it's not what I thought (or it was hyped up to be). When I mentioned to Australian work colleagues and friends about my planned birthday trip to T[...]
