10 Things to do in Sydney for Free

•••
So, I heard the other day that the Aussie dollar crashed a little bit, which will mean that the big land down under's prices may start to seem less steep to us foreigners who so love to visit one of the world's greatest countries. However, it's still not cheap over there by any stretch of the imagination, particularly in the big cities. At the beginni[...]

100 little things that travel has taught me

•••
Travel has been one of my most valuable teachers. Rather than sit in a classroom and learn about the world through a someone else's eyes, I did it through adventures and misadventures, tears and laughter. I know I still have so much to discover, but here are some lessons that sometimes I had to learn the hard way. Some of them I already kinda knew, some I ar[...]

Globe's Electric Blue Heaven

•••
Stunning landscape. Amazing surf. Beautiful ladies. Awesome waves. Insane surf tricks. Incredible cinematography. I cannot think of anymore ways to describe this insanely great, short, conceptual film featuring the talented Dion Agius doing his thing in the world’s best wave pool in the Middle East’s Abu Dhabi. Globe’s ‘Electric Blue Heaven’[...]

Through the eyes of Hengki Koentjoro

•••
Indonesia was always a place that had beautiful landscape that blew my mind: Stunning beaches, hypnotic rainforests, mysterious temples, hidden waterfalls… it is a tropical paradise that was immense to explore and backpack about in. I swear my camera hardly left my face as I attempted to capture scene upon scene of terrain, but as usual, it never looked as[...]

Sophie’s Five Countries through Instagram

•••
While recently looking through my passport, I've suddenly realised I only have three empty pages left despite it not needing to be renewed until 2018. Being well aware that some countries won’t let you enter if you don’t have a certain number of empty pages is a little worrying… but it’s made me reflect on the past few years of traveling. My passport[...]

Backpacking in Dominical and Uvita, Costa Rica

•••
The area around the small towns of Dominical and Uvita, on the Pacific coast of southern Costa Rica, is one of my favorite places in the world. I’ve visited the region four separate times over the course of six years, and although through that period of time there has been many changes, the overall energy of the magical region remains untouched. More hotel[...]

Underwater worlds by Elena Kalis

•••
Her facebook page reads "I am underwater photographer based in The Bahamas" and had I not already been familiar with the work of Elena Kalis I think I might hate her just from this statement alone – jealousy is a horrible thing! However my case of location envy is soon replaced by the sheer awe Elena inspires with her work. Quite simply, her photographs ar[...]

Rineke Dijkstra and the stories her photographs tell

•••
We see millions of images every day.  Every moment we see is a small picture that flashes through our brain and into our core.  Some images rush out of our minds forever, and some will never leave us. These fleeting memory portraits can become distorted over time, turning some into facades on inflated pedestals, and unfairly demoting others.  However a mi[...]

A day on Rottnest Island, Australia

•••
Over on the far western side of Australia, just off the coast of the most isolated city in the World, lies a small island of swooping hillsides and golden beaches with strange unique animals roaming the land. Seabirds dive above the brilliant turquoise sea that holds fantastic coral and strange gloopy sea-slugs that lurk in the clear waters of secret coves. [...]

The Parador: The Epitome of Jungle Luxury

•••
I spent my weekend surrounded by jungle. I saw a white faced capuchin during my morning walk. I ate lunch with an iguana beside me. I swam under a waterfall in the afternoon. I did yoga with tropical birds. I watched the sunset over the ocean as I ate dinner. The best part?  I didn't even leave my hotel. Travelettes, I have a terrible confession to make. Wh[...]
