Overseas sick: Why is it always so spectacular?

overseas-sick-why-is-it-always-so-spectacular

The downside of travelling to exotic places is that sometimes you end up getting sick. This seems fair enough – you are out of your immune comfort zone – but my question is why is it never just a bit sick? If you’re the kind of person who gets the occasional sniffle when you’re at home, why is […]

We have a SheGoes travel photography competition winner!

Where do you belong?

where-do-you-belong

Do we ‘belong’ in the town where we were born? The community we grew up in? Or is belonging more to do with the people we surround ourselves with than any geographic location? I think it’s a combination of all three. I grew up in Tamworth, NSW and subsequently, I  feel more at ease in the countryside than […]

Festivus!

What is your favourite festival, out of all of the festivals in all of the world? Mine is Woodford Folk Festival. But enough about me; I want to hear from you! Are you a Homebake fan? A Narooma Oyster Festival freak? A Dia de los Muertos lover? Talk to me people – I love the […]

Melbourne: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

melbourne-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly

There’s nothing like a 100 year storm to make a trip memorable. The Future Husband and I were just minding our own business when the skies opened up and emptied the freezer section on our heads. We were walking back from the Queen Victoria Markets and the weather was looking a bit shady, but hey, […]

Ethspagnol

I have an optimism problem. It’s getting to the point where my colleagues are making fun of me because my standard response is, ‘It’s easy!’. When I started Spanish lessons with the beautiful Ana at The Spanish Cat, I thought I would nail it. Not only was I going to breeze through the classes, I […]

Sparadise

I love made-up words; ‘excellerate’, ‘crafternoon’, ‘loonwalk’… I could go on. I realise that this is a very nichey niche thing I’ve got going on so it was with intense delight that I stumbled across a place called Sparadise. A spa in paradise … what could possibly go wrong? Well, here’s one thing. Sparadise is […]

Dream a little dream

dreams-can-come-true

Today I want to talk a little bit about dreams. I know it’s a little bit off topic but I am a narcisstic blogger who likes to think I am both wise and interesting (and therefore surely neither). But I digress. Dreams. A lot of genuinely wise people have a lot to say about their […]

Bill Bryson Gold

You know how I mentioned that I have a big old brain crush on Bill Bryson? Well, I finally finished The Lost Continent – Travels in Small-Town America yesterday and I just wanted to share some of Bill’s descriptions with you. He has the rare gift of being irreverent and cerebral; poetic and crass. I can only hope that one day, […]
