What’s It Like to Explore Scotland With Haggis Adventures?

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how much I loved exploring the Hebrides with Haggis Adventures. Scotland was already one of my favourite places in the world and a place where I spent some of the best vacations of my childhood, and my trip to the Hebrides with Haggis Adventures just validated that Deep…

Hopping Around the Hebrides With Haggis Adventures

I’ve been feeling the ‘Deep Scottish Love’ since I was seven years old. That was the year that I was introduced to Scotland in a trip that featured sitting on a canon outside a 13th-century castle (Duart Castle on the Isle of Mull — still one of my favourites!) and my younger brother trying to…

Queuing at Wimbledon: How To Get Into Centre Court (and Have Fun Doing It)

Nobody queues quite like the British, and nowhere do they do it better than at Wimbledon. This oldest of Grand Slams has moved into the 21 st century in leaps and bounds in the last 10 years with a highly-publicised move to equal prize money in 2007 and a brand-new roof on Centre Court to…

My 13 Best Photos of 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…

My Next Challenge: The Three Peaks Challenge…Twice

This week, I won’t be posting a Photo of the Week. Instead, I have an announcement that will hopefully result in many more photos in a few months’ time! In May of 2007, I took on a challenge. Only a few weeks after finishing my final exams, I was on my way up Snowdon, the…

So I Quit My Job…

I’ve been itching to tell you guys something for a while. First, visa restrictions got in the way — specifically, the clause in my Australian 856 permanent residency visa that said that if I quit my job within 2 years of getting my visa, I could face an investigation and possible loss of my permanent…

Six Months of Instagram: Part 2

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how much I love Instagram. I had stopped using my phone for photos prior to Instagram; I just didn’t see the point when I usually had a better camera with me to record the moment. Now I have thousands of photos stored on my little memory card, many…

My Travel Plans for the Rest of the Year

At the end of June, I went down to Sydney for a day of blog conference mayhem at Nuffnang Blogopolis. I had a great time and met a lot of really interesting people that I hope to be able to meet up with again soon. It really inspired me, not only to improve this blog…

Leather Bookmarks: My Travel Souvenir

When I was seven, my family went on our first summer trip to the UK. Out of those six weeks, we spent over a week in Scotland. It was both my brother’s and my first time visiting the country, and we both loved it. It was like a wonderland to us; my brother was enamoured…

Concussed in Winchester

In June 2004, I went to England with my family on our biennial trip to visit my grandparents. All through the 90s and early 2000s, going on one of these trips meant six fun-filled weeks in the British Isles during which we spent time in the seaside town of Cleethorpes, went to London to visit…
