Adventure Is Out There
This post is a little late but rather late then never! On May 6th 2017, I headed for an adventure to The Great Barrier Reef which is truly an amazing beautiful gem and I am so happy and proud it is in Australia. How lucky! I have been wanting to go there forever since I can remember and in search of nemo… From Cairns, I joined Sightseeing Tours Australia and spent the whole day exploring the magnificent Reef and first time snorkelling. Here are some images I snapped of me and the sea. I also created a Youtube video which you can watch by clicking here.
Hope you enjoyed this and have a lovely week! x
Just do it. You will be very glad that you did.
A World Heritage Site, Uluru (Ayres Rock) is really a magical and spectacular on Earth, an impressive Australian landmark, sandstone and a monolith in Uluru-Kata Tjuta. There are free transportation from Ayres Rock airport to your accomodation and it is free to get around from your accomodation into the small town. Here are some images I snapped of the beautiful Uluru.
Enjoy and hope you have a lovely week x

Happy New Year!! Hope you all kicked off 2017 on a good start.
During the New Year period I explored Yarra Valley, a different kind of exploration I usually opt for, it was nice taste testing different types of wines from different wineries and enjoying the landscapes. Here are some images I snapped of Yarra Valley and of course, no adventure is without breakfast first and coffee. This delicious breakfast dish consists of kale and cauliflower salad, almond hummus, avocado, poached eggs and salted seeds. Yum!
Hope you enjoyed this edition and have a lovely week lovelies 🙂
Nature fills my soul. Because when you stop and look around this Earth is pretty amazing.
Tasmania will always have a place in my heart. The beautiful Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair National Park, is a place which should be added to your bucketlist, one of Tasmania’s natural attractions. We did the Dove Lake circuit walk which took about 2 hours, 6kms long and board walked for most if its part all around Dove Lake and underneath the peak of Cradle Mountain, passing through the stunning temperature rainforest known as the Ballroom Forest.Here are some images I snapped, aside from the one’s Im in, snapped by my partner in crime.
It’s been a great year of adventures and I’m looking forward to 2017!!
Hope you enjoyed this edition and i’ll see you in the New Year.
Sydney has the best kind of blue. And its only Spring.
Balmoral Beach has a very nice and relaxing vibe, quite family oriented, than some other famous beaches such as Bondi or Manly. Here are some images I snapped show casing Sydney in its natural prime. Of course, no exploration is without finding a good breakfast and coffee point, and thats exactly what I did. You can make friends with salad with these tasty roast pumpkin and fennel with cos, labne and seeds was so delicious. With a side order of good coffee at Boathouse Cafe as seen in image 3! 😉
Love the blue stripes and the cosy laid back feel the cafe has with vases of blooms overlooking the water. Balmoral Beach is definitely worth a visit especially if you’re wanting a much more ‘chilled out’ place.
Hope you enjoyed this edition lovelies and have a great week.
Sydney Opera House. Location of photo being taken, Circular Quay.
Sydney Harbour Bridge. Location of photo being taken, Bangaroo.

Take the journey to enjoy the view… Just get out and do it. You will be very, very glad that you did. Mrs Macquarie Chair and Bangaroo are 2 great locations to sit and relax and wait for the perfect setting to take photos of the iconic landmarks, being the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. Ideally, you can pack yourself a mini picnic and chill as you set out to explore or better yet, people watching 😉 Here are some images I snapped and with summer coming on board now, I sure will be spending more time at these hotspots as I try to capture more sunset photos with the beautiful iconic landmarks as splendid backdrops.
Happy snapping! Enjoy your week lovelies.
Overlooking the Grampians on a rainy day
Caught my sister ‘gramming’
Collect moments. Not things.
Thats exactly what we did as we chased waterfalls and walked around, and the day began to clear on a wet weather day over the rugged mountain ranges of the Grampians, a National Park in Victoria filled with unspoilt beauty and breathtaking landscapes.
Never stop exploring.
Here are some images I snapped, hope you enjoy them.
Have a great week lovelies x
Whatever Sydney stop showing off now 😉
Sometimes Sydney really puts on a show with blue skies and cool breezes in Winter. I must say its my favourite time of the year to people watch with a coffee in hand or a visit a museum…
Here are visuals I captured with the first 2 being natural images.
Hope you enjoy them lovelies x

Its a great big world out there. Go explore.
Go see Australia with different tones of blue, the natural beauty of the Great Ocean Road needs to be on your bucket list, the 12 Apostles (there’s 8 remaining) is one of the world’s scenic coastal routes and is an Australian National Heritage listed site.
Here are some images I snapped back earlier in January 2016 this year in hot 40 degree weather!
Hope you enjoyed this my lovelies and have an adventurous week!
Happy New Year, hope you all had a safe and enjoyable one.
I was in Melbourne visiting family and did a last minute trip to the Great Ocean Road in hot 40 degree weather, swarmed by an army of flies but the fact that I got to meet people from all over the world such as America, Korea and China to name a few on tour and getting to see the epic Apostles was all worth it.
The 12 Apostles, theres actually 8! Is absolutely stunning… you can choose to see the Apostles during sunset, however, I opted for a day one. Here are some images I snapped in order; The 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and again from below where I went swimming in my clothes to cool down…
The next image is part of the beautiful Port Campbell National Park with that blue sky showing off. And lastly, that’s London Bridge. I highly recommend seeing the amazing Apostles if you’re in Melbourne, it usually takes a whole day but a day you won’t forget.
Hope you enjoyed this and have a great week lovelies.
After living abroad as an expat for a few years in NYC and London, I am currently back home in Sydney for Summer. Severely jetlagged as it took 48 hours of travel from the United Kingdom to Sydney with a 5 hour layover in Jakarta.
I’ve learnt you actually don’t need alot to live and came back with 21.8kgs and a backpack after 3 years away from home! On the third day after arriving I explored the beautiful city and finally got to try food and coffee at The Grounds in Alexandria.
Here are some images I snapped in order; the first image is the Sydney Harbour Bridge, a steel arch bridge across Sydney Harbour is an iconic image. Shaped like the sails of the boat and holding many events, image two is another iconic building. The next three images are from The Grounds of Alexandria, a place I highly recommend for food and coffee, there tends to be a queue but it’s worth the wait. Image three and four are some exterior of The Grounds and the last image is me with my knight in shining armour, coffee and brioche – oh yes, I’ll have it anywhere, anytime. 😉
Hope you enjoyed this piece and enjoy your week.
