Melbourne | Getting lost in Wilson’s Promontory National Park | Australia

Spoiler alert: Prepare for stunning images and a serious case of wanderlust! Ever since the first time I lived in Melbourne, visiting Wilson’s Promontory National Park has been high on my to-do list, sadly working too much got in the way and I had to wait a while year before I would actually get to […]

Melbourne | It’s not goodbye, it’s just see you later | Australia

Leaving Melbourne is always much harder than leaving any other place I’ve been to. I’m lucky enough to have the most amazing group of friends there that have become more like family over the last few years, and they make it very hard to move on. Right now I’m sat in the airport waiting to […]

Leaving Melbourne – back to life and back to blogging | Australia

Today marks the start of a brand new adventure. Yesterday, I sat in my apartment attempting to squeeze my life into my backpack and felt like I was standing on the edge of a precipice about to jump.

My top 5 places to escape into nature around Melbourne

As a backpacker who has now lived in Melbourne twice, I’ve loved getting out and exploring the city and far beyond.

Melbourne | Loss and love at Bourke Street Mall

I haven’t posted in a while. I’ll be honest and say I’ve just been working so much and haven’t had time to sit and write, but it’s not just that, I’ve lost my motivation a bit lately. While my life is almost full to bursting with exciting stories to tell, I’d kind of hit a […]

Melbourne | Escaping to Lysterfield | Australia

I’m not much of a city girl, being born and raised out in the English countryside seems to swing you one way or the other. My sister is the ultimate city girl living in London and working in the fashion industry, but while I’ve loved the crazy hustle and bustle of visiting cities like Bangkok, […]

Melbourne | Living on the Edge at Eureka Skydeck | Australia

As the clock ticked down on my final days in Melbourne, it struck me that there were still several things I had yet to do before leaving. All those touristy things we want to do but simply forget once we start working and life gets in the way. Well working 12 hour days six days […]

Melbourne | City of festivals, culture and life | Australia

Melbourne goes all out when it comes to celebrating the culture that pours from its streets – from street parties to festivals, there’s always something going on and yet another amazing faction of the city to celebrate.
