Don’t Follow Me, I’m Lost Too – West Coast Pt 1

Don’t Follow Me, I’m Lost Too – West Coast Pt 1

We didn’t head out of Perth until around 1.30pm. Two girls, one severely jet lagged (a day after flying in from the UK) and the other just fairly useless when it comes to practicalities; filling up and trying to work out what we could cook […]

AFL for dummies

AFL for dummies

Unless it involves horses, I’m totally not a sporty person. Even a team of mud streaked, rippling muscled men roughing each other up can’t keep my attention for an entire rugby match. So it’s no surprise that I’ve made it to 23 without ever having […]

The Songkran Dilema – Chiang Mai and Thai Visa Extension

The Songkran Dilema – Chiang Mai and Thai Visa Extension

This time last year I was finishing up my first month in Thailand. Livi (my sister) and I had been adamant that we would spend just a few days in Thailand, only because Bangkok was so easy to fly into and we could head straight […]

Finding an Australian Job – My Two Cents

Discovery Melbourne hasn’t been the most sociable hostel I’ve ever stayed in so I’d been fairly mopey since Mike left for a trip with his parents, thinking I’d spend the three weeks of his absence friendless and lonely. It turns out though that was just […]

Big City Lights Calling – Manjimup Pt 4

Big City Lights Calling – Manjimup Pt 4

The mad town of Manjimup is now well and truly in my past. And let’s hope it stays there. No more mental bosses screaming at me for getting sinks wet, no more cleaning of dog placenta from dogs tails and no more cleaning poo from […]

The Last British Outpost – Tana Rata

The Last British Outpost – Tana Rata

Tana Rata was not the sleepy highland town I was expecting. Most of the journey from KL was passed in deep slumber, until we reached the dense jungle of the lower mountains and excitement chased away the dreams for the rest of the journey. The […]
