Taiwan. A Fresh start and more importantly, a new challenge. I recently went back to the UK after spending a year in Australia to attend my mother's wedding, an incredible event which reconnected me once more to my family after a long time apart. The first few weeks were quite nostalgic, being surrounded with familiar … Continue reading Ni Hao from Taiwan! Week one complete
If you have been lucky enough, or brave enough, to backpack Australia the chances are you have found yourself here, the blue waters of the surfing paradise that is Noosa on Australia's Sunshine Coast. It's truly is one of the crowning jewels of Australia's East Coast, with a wealth of activities to keep you occupied. … Continue reading A day trip to Noosa | Sunshine Coast October 2016
September, a month or so had passed since first deciding to settle in the wonderful city of Brisbane. A decision that seemed to be working out like a charm. I had already found a rocking house to live in, a special someone and my first job down under, that was new but also familiar. Continuing … Continue reading Fruit related activities of September | Brisbane | QLD 2016
As a new month started, August to be precise, it seemed everything was finally starting to take shape, a new place to live in Brisbane's South side and job prospects starting to make themselves known. It seemed my 6 week backpacking lifestyle was over, the days of sharing a room with 8 people was gone, … Continue reading New Home New Friendships | Brisbane | August 2016
After my adventures from Cairns to the Whitsunday Islands, which really only consisted of drinking and sunbathing, I found myself heading to a big city for the first time proper in Australia, the state capital of Queensland, Brisbane. Apart from 3 days in Sydney on arrival in the country, my experience of the big cities was … Continue reading Brisbane Beginnings | QLD | July 2016
Whilst spending 3 weeks in Airlie Beach, (getting an excellent tan), I heard about going out to explore the Whitsunday Islands, I mean what kind of backpacker comes to Airlie Beach and doesn't see them right? I came to Australia completely last minute with zero research about where to go and what to do. So when … Continue reading Whitsunday Islands | QLD | July 2016
A beautiful place by day turns magical by night. An amazing experience to be able to lay and watch this sunset take place, captured by another short timelapse. Airlie Beach you will always have my heart.
Leisurely strolls along this beach were a daily ritual! The sense of freedom I felt, with the sand between my toes, was an incredibly surreal feeling. Waking up each day with the ever present sun and sand? Or still being stuck inside someone's armpit on the train in London? Hmm tough choice. Sometimes it takes a drastic move … Continue reading Airlie Beach | QLD | July 2016
Having left London on an overnight flight bound for Sydney 27.5 hours later, I really didn't know what to expect. I initially thought my genius had guaranteed a painless first long haul flight. The idea was simple: sleep through to China. HA! What seemed to be only a few hours of darkness turned to light. … Continue reading Somewhere in Australia | June 2016
June 2016: The biggest decision of my life, Australia! This image was captured flying over China en route to Guangzhou. 14 hours of flying definitely took its toll, seeing as the longest flight I'd travelled on before was a mere 4 hours, a doddle in comparison to what felt like a flight across the entire galaxy! … Continue reading A Quick Stop in Guangzhou | China | June 2016
So lately I've been scouring the App Store to find old school games from my childhood to sit down and replay, with the hopes of bringing back a flood of nostalgia. Seeing as there wasn't an iOS version of Metal Gear Solid or Future Cop LAPD, I settled for Tomb Raider, a steal at … Continue reading Nineties gaming vs now, what’s better?
Before I start, it's safe to say that this is the first thing I've written for some time. Having really neglected my degree and all the important things I learnt from it, I never really gave myself a chance to develop or even think about my writing, let alone construct this website. Writing is my … Continue reading An everyday working life, routine and leaving it all behind.
