27th November, 2016

Most people who know me (or follow me on instagram) will know that I’m a sucker for a good dessert. Sydney is a city that does desserts well and having lived most of my life there I’ve had plenty of opportunities to sample a fair few. It was actually quite difficult to narrow my list […]

Sydney’s Secret Garden: Chinese Garden of Friendship

19th November, 2016

I’ve always been guilty of neglecting to visit some of the typical tourist spots in my home town. It wasn’t until I was 18 that I finally visited Bondi Beach for the first time! When I started making plans to move to London I knew I wouldn’t have the opportunity to visit these places for […]

I went to see the fire projections on the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral… The dome of St Paul’s Cathedral lit up with flame projections as part of #greatfire350, commemorating 350 […]

What’s been happening this month? The big highlight for April was my trip to Sydney. One of my friends was getting married so I flew back for the wedding but I kept it a secret from my parents – only my sister and brothers knew I was coming back. It was pretty difficult to keep […]

5th January, 2015

At first I wasn’t sure if I would write this post, as I felt like I cut back on traveling a little this year (mostly to do with the amount of time and money I had to invest in getting a new UK visa). But as I started looking back on blog posts and travel […]

Playing Tourist in Sydney

9th September, 2014

I had to make a trip back to Sydney in June for a few weeks to apply for my UK Tier 2 visa. I brought my British boy with me and I wanted to do all the typical tourist things as he’s never been to Australia before. Here’s a glimpse at some of the things […]

A Room With A View

3rd September, 2014

I’m taking part in a travel link up and the theme for September is ‘A Room with a View’. I’ve stayed in my fair share of hotels over the years, most of the time the views are less than spectacular. Occasionally though I do like to treat myself to a room upgrade. I think this […]
