A Year in Australia in One Blog Post

As with all my blog posts, this isn’t going to be your when, where, what to do post. This if anything is my ode to Australia, a country I never liked, never got on with, didn’t understand and wanted to leave the minute I got there. BUT, its also a tribute to a country that […]

Julie Andrews Floating Down The River Gin

The majority of my friends, I couldn’t tell you where they came from. They were just there one day. I don’t remember the first words we said to each other, just one day they were attached to me for the rest of their lives, imprinted on my heart and trapped in my phone; those poor, […]

Basically a List of What I Ate in Bali

This is not your typical ‘where, when, how’ travel blog piece. This is where I tell you predominately how lazy I was, how much I ate and to let me gloat.

Babe, You Smell Like Biscuits

My money and also my moods, definitely hang Carrie Bradshaw-esq in my wardrobe and are literally nowhere else to be seen.

An Overactive Imagination, an Overdraft and Ovaries

Does anyone have a crystal ball I can borrow? An official and certified future teller extraordinaire, such as Derick Acorah, Cilla Black or Jesus in a glassy ball? One of the Mystic Meg variety that is going to tell me exactly what is going to happen in the future, on a daily if not hourly basis? […]

Pig Ribs

I have this part of my body that is only akin to a roast dinner with pork belly. Its all skin and podge, and it sits neatly under my bra and above my little round untoned belly; like awning for a patio. I can grab it in a crab claw hand and shake it with humour, […]

The Rules of a Lackpacker

There is a super fun part of travelling. A subject so hushed up and silent that its existence becomes a secret. An essential part of the backpacking experience, the secret is shared by everyone with a rucksack the size of their body and the weight of a small wardrobe. By everyone who has tan that […]

The Socially, Physically and Compulsively Awkward Butterfly

Let me first apologise for my lateness. As in life where I am perpetually a minimum of 15 minutes late for absolutely everything, thus my writing has become a part of that same lazy force.
