The Best of Sydney in 24 Hours

Having lived, laughed, and loved in Melbourne I had been craving to see more of what Australia had to offer. Having heard of the great debate of which city is better, Melbourne or Sydney, I knew that I had to see for myself. My time in Sydney was part of a longer, one month plan, to seeing the beaches of…

Melbourne’s Best Kept Secret

Fitzroy, Collingwood, South Yarra – all Melbourne suburbs that people crave to live in, or visit by recommendation of their guidebooks. Yes, they are trendy and hip, but there are suburbs with just as much character waiting to be explored. One day I stumbled upon the inner-western suburb of Yarraville and completely fell in love.

10 Memorable Travel Moments 2016

  Although most of 2016 saw me working and saving hard for the big finale in November (the start of one year in Australia) I still managed to cover three continents in one year.

Sometimes living in a big city can be tiring. The hustle and bustle of being can be a lot for anyone, but when you have anxiety, it can be too much all together. Even though the people in Melbourne in general give you plenty of space, and none of the streets feel enclosed, I’ve still been struggling with anxiety a…

MELBOURNE SUMMER NIGHT MARKET

  The people of  Melbourne love food. I mean, everyone loves food, but Melbourne loves great food. I always think that the best food can be found in markets, although finding a truly interesting market which makes me want to part with my money is hard to find. If you know anything about Melbourne then you probably know about the…

I had no idea what to expect of Australia, but even though I can with no expectations I was still taken a-back by what I found on the other side of the planet.  …
