Today I’ve been 22 for six days, and each of those days I’ve gone to the beach, and taken a photograph (or twenty). I’m amazed at how much more I appreciate the warmth, and the beautiful beaches in Australia since being in the States. This week I’ve been studying my butt off, catching up with … More Home: This week

Home: Pre-plans

So I’m in the process of booking/dating/finalizing/organizing the next year in travel plans. YAY! There’s some pretty ridiculously exciting trips in the next 12 months that cover all the basics: Sand, Adventure, Desert, New Cities, Snow, Oceans and People. I want to have everything (well, mostly) booked before I let my plans out of the bag but for dates there’s … More Home: Pre-plans

I’m a big fan of spontaneous trips, drives and explorations. Earlier this week, to comfort my exam-ridden sister, we explored Garie Beach, which I am proud to call a local beach.

I’ve spent the past few months driving in the left hand side of the car, on the left hand side of the road. Switching back hasn’t been too much of an issue. I keep turning on the windscreen wipers instead of the blinker/indicator. Today, whilst on the highway, I looked to my right at the … More Home : Driving
