Five truly unique Australian foods

Basic Beach Accessories For Your Australian Beach Adventure

Going to the beach in Australia is one of the most marvellous things to do. Even though I can’t swim very well, I love a good day by the seaside, reading a book and getting a good dose of vitamin sea. After years of random beach babe day trips I think I’ve finally...

Reviving a Regional Town One Dancing Queen at a Time

Reviving a Regional Town One Dancing Queen at a Time It’s easy to imagine a small, wild west style town in the middle of America. A town that’s youth have departed, the cheer has long gone and there being no economic reason for anyone to stop by. Yet in Australia we...

A Single Lady’s Guide to Surry Hills

Surry Hills may not be the first place that you think of when planning a solo lady trip to Sydney. Which is understandable as it’s a well known not well known area. When you mention it to locals they know the area rather well and just about everyone has a story about...

How to Spend a 10 hour layover in Doha, Qatar

How to Spend a 10 hour layover in Doha, Qatar

Really what I’m saying is how you should best use your time on a really long arse layover in Doha. Flying Qatar for me really was a lovely experience but when I booked my tickets I really didn’t pay much attention to the long layover that I had agreed to. Whilst this...

The one thing that has changed how I travel

The one thing that has changed how I travel
