  • Hovercrafting in the Luleå Archipelago

    February 19, 2014

    Hovercrafts. Just the name evokes thoughts of hokey science fiction stories from the 1960s–or maybe, if you grew up in a slightly less sci-fi mad home than I did, it just brings to mind the fast ferries that run between Dover and Calais. In any case, I’m almost certain you won’t think of a hovercraft…

  • 2013 By The Numbers

    December 31, 2013

    I’ve always enjoyed looking at the numbers that define my year in travel, and it’s no different this year — especially because I have a lot more out-of-the-ordinary numbers than usual (since I can’t say I’ve ever experienced – 38ºC or have ever been to 3 Grand Slams in one year before)! While there’s no…

  • My 13 Best Photos of 2013

    December 29, 2013

    It’s the time of year that all bloggers start trotting out their “best of” posts to show off what they’ve been up to during the year. Since 2013 was quite an eventful year for me–one where I quit my job and travelled to 13 countries, only 4 of which I’d visited before–I felt that, of…

  • A Holiday Gift Guide for Female Travellers

    December 7, 2013

    What exactly do you buy for a female traveller, especially one travelling full-time? It’s a tough decision because it seems like every choice is either something that will either weigh her down or will cost way more than your budget (in my case, that’s nearly anything to do with photography). Having spent half of this…

  • The Kindness of Strangers

    December 3, 2013

    Getting your wallet stolen, no matter whether it happens at home or abroad, is a traumatic experience. The problem with it happening abroad is that it has a tendency to taint the place you were visiting, even if it was a fantastic destination in every other regard. While I certainly like to think that I…

  • High Above Tamborine Mountain on the Skywalk

    November 21, 2013

    One of my favourite things about southeast Queensland — and one of the reasons I chose to study abroad here back in 2005 — is the sheer number of activities you can do in the region and how varied all of them are. Tamborine Mountain is one of my favourite examples of this. Surfer’s Paradise…
