5 lessons I learnt from living in Paris

•••
When I moved to Paris spontaneously in the summer of 2013, it was out of a need for adventure, for profound change and a desire for a life a little less ordinary. I was ready for the change of scenery, but I was in no way prepared for how much I would learn, grow and transform after a year in the bewildering intensity of the city. If you have ever undergone [...]

A letter to my pre-travel self

•••
Dear 20-year-old me,   It’s funny how you think life is so straight forward. Finish school, get qualifications, go get a job, a boyfriend, a house. Maybe get married and have some babies. It’s hard for me now to think that was ever what you wanted. You were meant to be successful, academic, have a long and fulfilling career and a perfect f[...]

China is a bucket list destination, with so much to learn about the country with the largest population and one of the world’s earliest civilisations.

An oasis of tranquillity can be found amongst these dinky packe[...]

How To Pack Like A Minimalist

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 left feeling overwhelmed and deflated, crushed by the hectic pulse of the[...]

5 Offbeat British Festivals to Catch this Summer

•••
Ah, the British summertime! When wobbly bits and sunburnt noses adorn every grassy knoll and poorly-laid beach towel, and it's finally acceptable once again to eat ice cream for breakfast. Although if we're thinking of a super traditional British summer, it's probably raining. But no less, festival season is upon us. But I don't mean Glasto, or Edinburgh[...]
