Driving down the road into Airlie Beach was a relief. We were greeted by wonderful views of the bluest of oceans and the sun was making them glisten and dazzle. Hours of travelling, stopping off at various places for the night in order to split up the journey. It was a relief because we knew […]Read more "Airlie Beach and the scenic flight"
My trusty Lonely Planet book, which now looks battered and worn, suggested we check out the Capricorn Caves whilst in Rockhampton. Known as the beef capital of Australia we also expected to chow down on some rather good steak that evening. As with all travel plans, they don’t always tend to run as smoothly as […]Read more "The un-forgetable lightning strikes in Rockhampton"
Note: After a short break away from the blogging world, to temporarily concentrate on settling into a new home and job, I am hoping to get back to posting every other day again!

I thought wow…I am in LA. We politely refused and continued the mundane task […]Read more "Reminiscing: The wonders of LA"

The wifi you connect to whilst you travel is public or semi-public as apposed to your private, […]Read more "Using a VPN is important for travelers"
The White House was very much what the name says it is…white. The grass was also very green and the big black gates that surround the place towered above me. It didn’t take long to discover that walking was an issue due to the hot and humid weather conditions so we hopped on some red bikes […]Read more "Reminiscing: Washington and the red bikes"
Just like Friends, I became addicted to watching re-runs of The Big Bang Theory. Whilst I was at university, one of my housemates and I used to watch it whilst we cooked our dinner. It became some sort of unspoken routine. We would come home from university or work and begin cooking dinner whilst The […]Read more "Will Australia change my outlook on life?"
Recently my Facebook feed has exploded with people announcing their engagements. The photo of the ring or the updated relationship status. If they aren’t getting engaged then they are getting married. Have I really reached the acceptable age to get engaged or married? 25 – that is all I am. I have spent a number […]Read more "I’m just off to Oz"
