Marrakesh – Snowy Peaks to Desert Oases

Marrakesh – Snowy Peaks to Desert Oases

(Original art work by Aaron Lee @aaron_illustration) Wonky eyes, huge and gluey, glanced up as we were lead down the streets of the Medina to Riad Dar Moulay Ali (£44 a night). A minute, dusty kitten, paws and tail tucked neatly away, was watching a […]

How the West won me – Utah and Zion National Park

How the West won me – Utah and Zion National Park

The megalithic Salt Lake Temple of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was illuminated in the night when I landed. ‘Stay clear of the polygamists,’ had been my mum’s parting words at Manchester Airport. Up to this point I didn’t even know SLC was the famous […]

Chasing Waterfalls in the Atherton Table Lands

Chasing Waterfalls in the Atherton Table Lands

Platypuses aren’t the easiest things to spot, you’ve got to watch for the rustling of lilly pads and follow the water’s ripples. Discern a slick wet back within the murky shadows of the pond and you’ve got the mysterious creature. Not that you can see […]

Ghosts in the Mist – My World Nomads Entry

Ghosts in the Mist – My World Nomads Entry

One thousand and eighty Buddha’s, eyes cast down, greeted me in Myanmar; my jumping off point. Five months in South East Asia with my sister, and she had become my safety net in any travel mishaps. It was too cosy: time to test my solo […]

Paradise Found – The Daintree Rainforest

Paradise Found – The Daintree Rainforest

Creeping from my bunk room at 5am I couldn’t believe no-one else was getting up to see the sunrise over the Great Barrier Reef from the edge of the worlds oldest rainforest; the Daintree. The upside; I’d have the true deserted island experience. The downside; […]

Goodbye Sweet Pea – West Coast Roadtrip Pt 4

Goodbye Sweet Pea – West Coast Roadtrip Pt 4

Manjimup   After our rather unceremonious ousting from the Kingsley Motel, I wasn’t keen to bump into Charlie or Andrew so avoided their end of Manjimup. A swift drive by to show Livi where I’d lived for my first two months in Oz and that […]

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 […]

I left my heart in Brisbane

I left my heart in Brisbane

Time of Year: Early August. Duration of Stay: 4 days I landed two hours too early for my hostel check in on Sunday. After a double shift on Saturday, no sleep, no shower and no change of clothes, bedraggled was probably an understatement. But rather […]

Essential Melbourne

Essential Melbourne

Melbourne – the breakfast city, in which I actually very rarely made it out for breakfast. No matter your location, you won’t have to look far for smashed avo or some hipster spin on eggs benedict. If you’re in the CBD try Degraves street, bustling […]
