  • Dear Aunty Em: Snorer adorer

    Monday, February 4, 2019

    ‘The guy I’ve been seeing is a snorer. I’ve tried sleeping next to him twice and it’s been a disaster – how do you sleep next to a snorer? Is it okay to want to sleep separately even in the courting phase due to sleep being an absolutely essential (mental) health thing?’ Dearest Snorer Adorer, RUN AWAY […]

  • A Guide to Canggu, Bali

    Thursday, January 31, 2019

    You’ve smashed sundowners in Seminyak and watched the waves in Uluwatu. You’ve had your hair grabbed at the creepy monkey temple in Ubud and you’ve chilled at Jimbaran with a sambal-and-seafood feast on the beach.  So where to next? Which Bali neighbourhood is on your wish list? Have you considered Canggu? Don’t be scared off by its proximity […]

  • Embracing middle age

    Tuesday, January 22, 2019

    I am going to tell you a secret. I have always been middle aged. While there are many ways to gauge your age – chronologically, with one of those Real Age questionnaires, or even with how old you feel when you go to a night club – there’s your own internal clock that ticks along until one […]

Lisa’s Travel Deal of the Week

Lisa’s Travel Deal of the Week It’s been a long time between deals for me here at SheGoes.  After some time spent tramping the wilds of Victoria, I returned to Sydney and a house move that had me convinced it would have actually just been easier to stay in the wilds of Victoria and construct […]

Win a 7 day Jucy campervan rental

Being on a budget sucks. Everytime I spend money on something non-essential, I feel really guilty and horrible which really detracts from the overall pleasure of the purchase. Case in point: This morning. I went to the chemist to buy a nail file and came away with two nail polishes (black sateen and goddess), lip […]

I love Brisbane

Flying into this north-flung city, I had no strong feelings. I had always assumed that Brisbane would be an extension of the Gold Coast. More glitz, more high rise, more muggy nights spent drinking under neon. I was wrong. Brisbane offers up everything I hold dear in a whimsical, frontier setting. There are crooked sailing boats moored in the river, barely […]

A holiday in a bottle

Every country has its drink. Peru has Pisco Sours and Chicha, Thailand has Sang Thip and Singha. Wherever you go in the world, there is always one or two tipples that are served in every bar that are usually cheap and locally produced (read: nasty and fermented with saliva). What I thought might be a bit […]

COCO – International Dog of Leisure by Genevieve Frew

Perth perhaps by Maggie Videan

Perth perhaps? By Maggie Videan Depending on where you live, Perth is a decent old flight for us Easterners. It is five hours over and, with tail winds, about four hours back. So, ideally, you may want to spend more than a few days there or try and work in another Western Australian destination to make the […]
