Seaside Artistry at the Swell Sculpture Festival

Currumbin Beach is one of my favourite spots on the Gold Coast. It’s a bit further away from the craziness that is Surfer’s Paradise and it’s got an awesome, laid-back vibe to it. Plus, Elephant Rock at the beach’s northern end provides endless photographic opportunities no matter what time of day, so it’s a spot…

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…

Because we were expecting a late night, I stayed with the awesome Kirsty rather than driving back…
