I’M BACK!

First of all, a huge apology for disappearing the past year! Those that have followed me for a while, will realise I haven’t posted anything on my blog for around 6 months. It wasn’t intentional, and it hasn’t been because I’ve not been travelling, I have. I just didn’t find myself enjoying blogging anymore, and…

DECEMBER UPDATE

So in November, I announced I would be making more blog posts, and posting 3 days a week. Anyone that follows me, will know that hasn’t happened. No, I haven’t been lazy, I have a genuine reason. I left Queensland and my little apartment in Brisbane, packed up and moved to Western Australia. A little…

NOVEMBER – A NEW WAY OF DOING THINGS

November is finally here! This year is going so fast, and it’s bizarre to think I’ve been travelling for exactly 6 months today. Now, I’ve been useless with my blog lately. Apologies about that.

UPDATE OCTOBER 2017

Apologies, I’ve been useless with my blog recently and hardly posted anything. I haven’t done an update for a while, so thought I would fill you all in on the latest. I’m currently living in Brisbane, in Australia. I have an apartment in New Farm, which is a really nice area, and pretty close to…

EXPLORING HONG KONG DIARY: DAY 2

So I had my first night in my hostel. I had a mixture of jet lag, and also experienced what it’s like to try and sleep in a busy city like Hong Kong. The hostel was really good that it was centrally located, but this meant road traffic noise pretty much all night.┬áThat, and being…

10 THINGS I’VE LEARNED LIVING IN AUSTRALIA FOR 3 MONTHS

You can’t buy alcohol from the supermarket Back home, you can do your weekly food shop, and chuck in a few beers/bottles of wine with it, then go home. Not in Australia. You have to go to a specific bottle shop to purchase your alcohol. Luckily there’s usually one nearby to every supermarket, so you…

UPDATE JUNE 2017

First of all, apologies for not updating my blog in a while. I’m currently travelling up the East Coast in Australia, and the wifi over here is shockingly bad. So I’ve not been able to post as much as I’d hoped. I thought I’d write a little update about what I’m up to, then do…

HONG KONG: ARRIVAL

For those that follow me on my blog, and on instagram, you’ll know that I’ve set off for Australia, with a stopover in Hong Kong. I’m writing this very jet lagged, at midnight Hong Kong time. So apologies if it makes no sense! The Flight I flew to Hong Kong from London Heathrow with Virgin…
