When I landed I was still head over heels in love with Asia. I don’t think I was quite ready to face the western world again. The quiet hit me and the space too. It definitely wasn’t a bad thing but I needed to adjust. Australia’s a country I’d always dreamed of living and, Read More
I’m pretty sure this is where I had my first Australia aha moment. Flying down a ridiculously long beach on the island made of sand in a 4 wheel drive, music blaring, rolling waves chasing us as the tide came in. I’ve never felt so free (on land) in my entire life.
Checking into a hostel for the first time since I landed in Oz was a bit of a weird one. I got here just before Christmas and have mostly been taken in by friends, a few nights in a hotel, a cottage and a few weeks of living in a campervan. I looked around, Read More

Trouble is, I’ve changed. So many questions whirling around my head now about what I want from this life., Read More
I never thought I’d type those words, as I never thought I’d have anything to thank my dad for, apart from providing the sperm to give me life. My dad passed away 2 years ago today only just over a week after I grieved for another human, both deaths rocked my world. I didn’t, Read More
I started my trip in a Bangkok hotel room wondering was I going to last the distance. I’d waved goodbye to a lot, including relationships that I knew would change forever. Without any hesitation I knew I was doing the right thing but I was in limbo. I’d made the journey but I hadn’t, Read More
