We touched down in Guayaquil, Ecuador at 10 o’clock at night, and it was super surreal. I couldn’t quite get my bearings, nor believe that we were actually in South America. For me, it was country number 30 and continent number 5. I’d really wanted to visit 30 countries before I turned 30 this past June, … More The One Where I Visit My 30th Country
So, once again, this blog has kind of been left alone for, woah, almost a year. And that’s mainly because I just haven’t been doing a lot. Or at least I wasn’t, until about 5 months ago, when I suddenly got insanely busy and didn’t have time to write anyway. After my epic trip to … More The one where I account for the last year of my life
A very good friend of mine has just been on an epic trip around the West Coast of America, living the dream and ticking things off her bucket list. These are her thoughts… 1. Don’t ever outgrow hostel dorms. Sure, you’ll get woken up at least 5 times on the first night coz someone dropped … More 11 Deep Thoughts on Life and Backpacking
I’m sure you can imagine that life spent at summer camp is always pretty hectic, hence why it’s taken me until right now to actually sit down and write about things that have been going on. Summer has come and gone, kids arrived and left, staff came, they worked hard, played hard and went off … More Life Goes On…And On… And On…
Things have been pretty hectic at camp (so what’s new?!) hence why there haven’t been many massively insightful or particularly thoughtful posts recently. I just haven’t had the time to sit down and gather together all the things I want to say. I’m almost halfway through my summer at camp already and I can’t quite … More Life & All Things Camp
In many, if not all aspects of life, work, and love, we will always be presented with challenges. And with those challenges come choices and the chance to figure out a solution to our problems. During these past few weeks of staff training at camp, we have been been extremely busy getting everything prepared for … More What Are Our Options?
So I’m back in Sydney. Wow. How fast did those 3 months go?! It’s insane how quickly it went – honestly it feels like just yesterday we were getting off the train in Taree and arriving at the farm, very excited and a little bit nervous about all the things we’d be doing. And what … More Photo Of The Week: From Farm Life To City Life
Farm life is ticking along quite nicely. We’ve been here 6 weeks today (or to be more precise 42 days) and time is flying by. Only another 47 days to go (if my calculations are correct) and then we will be back in Sydney for a couple of weeks before we leave this beautiful country … More Photo Of The Week: Honeycomb Valley Girls
**Disclaimer: This started out as a very sensible post about how my attitude to travelling has changed over the years but somewhere along the way it turned into a brain splurge of thoughts and feelings about my travelling life. It may not make much sense. Also, it is long. Read at your own will. I’ve … More The Most Honest Post I’ve Ever Written: Help?! I Think I’m A Travelling Snob.
This week was, of course, Christmas! And I flew half way across the world from Sydney to Mauritius (via Perth) to spend the week with my family, whom I hadn’t seen for over 7 months! We have spent a blissful 7 days catching up, playing in the pool, lying on the beach, tanning (and burning), … More Photo Of The Week: Nice Knees On The Beach
