Video: The Valentines Proposal on Sydney Harbour

February 9, 2016

The Beard and I never planned to have a long engagement, it just sort have happened that way. Life got in the way, we made other plans, went on trips, holidays and ended up spending moneyย on other things (we’re terrible at saving!) We’ve been engaged for two years now, it’s the anniversary this Valentines and I’ll be honest, it’s very easy to forget what being engaged actually means.…

My Guide to Cairns, Australia

October 13, 2015

Cairns was somewhere I always wanted to visit, pretty much as soon as the Beard and I decided that we wanted to do a year in Australia. Iโ€™d heard so many amazing things about this place, and I also knew it was a hot spot for Great Barrier Reef trips. So after five months of living and working in Brisbane, we flew up to Cairns for a few…

Morning Time Dew #MyFragrantFlashback

May 31, 2015

Do you ever catch a whiff of a familiar scentย and you are immediately transported back to a time or a moment in your life that was special? Perhaps the spritz of a particular perfume reminds you of a lovely someone, or the aroma of a certain food causes a holiday flashback. It could be a moment forgotten, a moment lost amongst other memories that is suddenly brought back…

Sydney on a Budget

July 22, 2014

Yes that is the Aussie fiver pictured above (source). Why do they get pretty colourful plastic money and we crinkly old dirty coloured cash? Anyways, I thought I would do some budget backpacker life posts, mainly focusing on cheap and free things to do in cities. I thought I would start with Sydneyโ€ฆ Sydney was the last city we backpacked to, therefore the poorest point of our trip,…
