Pink skies over Cabarita Beach.

The East coast of Australia has some of the most beautiful sunsets. The sun sets behind you as you look out to sea, and as it does, the sky in front of you is lit up in bursts of pinks and oranges. I caught a few sunsets at Cabarita Beach in Northern New South Wales […]

Summer 2018 in Berlin.

What’s summer like in Berlin? Well, there’s a lot of sunshine. A lot of afternoons spent spread out on picnic blankets, grazing on hummus and carrots and drinking beer. A lot of visits to the many lakes around the city, to escape the heat. A lot of cycling to meet friends, to watch sunsets from […]

August Goals.

It’s literally nigh on 35 degrees as I write this, with a fan pointed directly into my (shiny with sweat from my bike ride) face. Yes, I get it, summer is here. Oh god, I get it. You’d think as an Australian I’d be somewhat well-adjusted to the heat, but I’m also used to air-conditioning […]

Kala festival, Albania.

Never really considered Albania as a a travel destination until a boutique music festival opened up shop there. Albania’s not really a hot tourist destination, but it might just become one. Right next to Greece, it boasts the same beautiful waters and coastlines, but it’s way less popular. Also a lot trickier to get to.

July Book Wrap Up.

I like that the photo for this blog gives the impression that I read like 9 books this month when actually URGH this has been a terrible reading month. Mostly it’s just been a month of average books that I’ve kinda slogged through without really enjoying. Isn’t that dull? Well, here you go. And let’s […]

June Book Wrap Up.

I managed to read five books in June, which is pretty great! I did a long weekend in Budapest and a festival in Albania, so I got through a lot of reading on each flight. Airplanes are my favourite place to read! I love that I can’t get distracted by the internet and I just […]

Budapest

Hi, welcome to the world of lazy blogging where I can’t reaeaally be bothered to write anything about Budapest, but want you to know that I loved it and here are some snaps (mostly of me eating) to prove that I don’t just sit in my flat all day writing like the hermit that I […]

June Goals.

I’m still lowkey convinced that it’s February, so it’s kind of a big shock to write “June” in the headline of this blog post today. But oh, I can feel that this is going to be an amazing month. Spring has gone so quickly and summer has just tumbled out of nowhere. I’ve got some […]

May Book Wrap Up.

Slow reading month, owing mostly to slogging my way through the first of Robin Hobb’s epic fantasy series, The Farseer Trilogy. I also read Melina Marchetta’s On the Jellicoe Road in the space of a day, but I’m not counting that because it’s about the millionth time I’ve read that perfect piece of fiction.

To the lighthouse, Byron Bay.

The lighthouse at Byron Bay is an insanely popular tourist attraction. The best way to get up there is walking, although it’s quite a steep hill, especially in the Australian summer. We battled the heat to reach the top, along with about a million other spectators, here to witness the beauty of the northern New […]

April Book Wrap Up.

After a crazy first of May in Berlin I’m finally back to blogging. Admittedly I’ve been letting it slide a little lately because I’ve been working so hard on finishing my New Adult novel Brew Books, which you can read on Wattpad now. With all that writing I only put away 3 books this month, but they […]

March Book Wrap Up.

March is done! I’m in Australia right now, visiting home for three weeks, so I’m having a little taste of summer before heading back to cold Europe. If you want a taste of my Aussie adventures, I’m always documenting them all over on my Instagram. The flight from Berlin to Brisbane is long anyway (flying […]
