The weather in Edinburgh is not the greatest. It’s actually a bit on the depressing side for someone who spent two ‘winters’ in Australia. So instead of posting about this beautiful (but, at the moment, slightly dreary) city I live in, I’m going to write about the Land Down Under. In June, my friend Aideen [...]

Hogmanay: the Big Event

For this New Years, I wanted Scotland. I came to Edinburgh to be in Edinburgh. To experience its best events. And see the city shine at its brightest. This New Years I wanted to make it the best. The most epic. The most Scottish. The answer was Hogmanay. The answer was the Keilidh. Living in [...]

Hogmanay Torchlight Procession

I’m one of those lucky people who gets to call Edinburgh home. Well for this year at least. Part of the benefit of living in Edinburgh is getting to experience the world-renowned New Year’s Experience that is Hogmanay. If you are a blogger and reading this, I’m sure you are very familiar with the infamous [...]

Photo of the First Day of 2014

Hey all, I know I’ve spent the majority of the year offline. It’s not because the year hasn’t been full of adventure. Quite the opposite actually. I did a trip down the East Coast of Australia, visited Melbourne, and then had one of biggest adventures of my life when a friend and I drove from [...]

All-Inclusive Resorts: They Have a Place in my Heart

Now we all know I’m not normally the biggest fan of all-inclusive resorts. The majority of my travels tend towards solo-backpacking in traditional backpacker choices (Mongolia excepted). But all-inclusive resorts have their place in my heart. I’ve visited exactly one: Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for Christmas 2009. It was a first of many things: my [...]

Whitsunday Islands: a Bumpy Ride and Rain Ahead

I had the great misfortune of encountering rain in the Whitsundays. Lots of it. And of a particularly turbulent variety. Not quite as bad as ex-Tropical Storm Oswald but far from the idyllic paradise the islands and beaches normally present. Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays were a halfway stop for me on my East Coast [...]

Snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef

I finally have travel things to report on after so long ‘living’ in one place, even if it is Australia. I don’t think I ever made things clear, but since mid-February, I’ve been working at a country pub in Central Queensland. Specifically, Anakie. 44kms west of Emerald, and belonging to a group of three towns [...]

East Coast Australia by Instagram

So. I might be one of the worst travel bloggers out there. I kind of just left you all hanging. Not that I’ve been up to much these last few months…. The important information that I did forget to announce was that I was traveling the East Coast of Australia for two weeks! Oops. Well [...]

My Favourite Brisbane Experiences

Now, I know Brisbane doesn’t have the best reputation. You’ll hear “it doesn’t have charm!” “It doesn’t have nightlife!” “There’s nothing to see!” I won’t dispute these claims. It doesn’t have the beaches of Perth, the history of Sydney’s The Rocks or the restaurants and cafes of Melbourne. But after living there for two months, [...]

*Guest Post* Planning a round the world trip: What to remember (and what to forget)

This is a Guest Post. Anyone who tells you planning a round the world trip is easy – is lying. Or, they are a super awesome organizer. In which case – I’m a little jealous. I’ve just finished organizing my round the world trip (which I leave for in two weeks!) and I’m so ready [...]
