September Book Wrap Up.

I read for pleasure and to relax, but at the moment I’m feeling stressed by how little I’ve been reading lately, which is the complete opposite of what should be happening. At the beginning of the year I set myself a goal to read 60 books in 2018 and for the first half of the […]

Meet the characters in my novel.

If you’ve been around this blog for a moment, you might have heard me going on about this novel I’ve written. While I was writing, I found it pretty helpful to visualise the characters I was writing about. I found some inspirational images on Pinterest to help me imagine the characters in the book. The […]

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.
