During my meal, I was talking to my friend and we got onto the topic of dining alone. As a solo traveller and someone who is quite comfortable doing things alone, I was telling her how easy it is, and after giving her some tips, I thought I would share with you all, my top five steps for feeling more at ease when dining solo.

27 Things You’ll Relate To If You’re An Aussie Living In London

Okay, I did it. I said I never would, but here I am two years in, officially having joined the thousand other Aussie’s living in London. And when I say officially, I mean literally. I’m living in Wandsworth which unbeknownst to me prior to signing my rental lease, is where all the Aussies in London are. Well, here and Clapham to be exact. 

If you’re reading this and have taken that long ass flight back home, then props to you for appearing roughly human after twenty plus hours in the air filled with bad food and screaming babies. Unless of course, you were in business or first class. Then, can we be friends? 

However, if you’re like me and still living in the land where a week of 23 degrees is considered a heat wave and your taste buds are craving a good cup of coffee, then I’m sure you can relate to the below.

Salzburg In Autumn

Hey everyone! Firstly, apologies for this post being so delayed. For some reason I’ve been doing everything BUT making time to write it. But here I am, and I’m super excited to share my amazing trip with you all. From exploring the old town and making apple strudel, to visiting the Sound of Music filming locations, Salzburg was one visual treat after another. My camera was practically glued to my hand the entire trip, so for this post, I’ve decided to do more of a photo diary.

Blog Pics

Wow, is it that time of year already? As Christmas decorations slowly trickle onto store shelves and advertisements for New Year’s begin to flood my inbox, its clear that the years end is fast approaching. It’s usually around this time each year, when a sudden jolt of panic arrises and endless questions flow through my mind. What have I achieved this year? Is there still time to tick items off my bucket list? Etc.,etc.

As with every year, there have been various ups and downs, but as I return from my trip to Santorini, having watched the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen from my private balcony, I can say with confidence that the ups far outweigh the downs. 

Taking the time to reflect on my achievements, my goals, my dreams, lessons learned and what sets my soul on fire, is what helps me enter another year of my life with a clear mindset and an open heart. So here’s 31 lessons from 31 years of living.

Care Packages For The Homeless

5

“Be the change you want to see in the world”

This is one of my favourite quotes by Gandhi and it’s these exact words that I had running through my mind as I packed a bag full of care packages, that I had created for the homeless. I spent my day distributing them throughout the city of London and the reactions I had just warmed my heart.

I’ll never forget the woman who started crying and repeating “thank you” over and over, as I left her with a bag full of water, snacks, toiletry products and more. Giving back is part of who I am. It always has been and always will be. Today is International Poverty Day and I wanted to share my experience with you, in hopes of raising awareness and inspiring others to undertake their own acts of kindness. You never know how a small gesture can change someone’s entire day.

I hope you enjoy this video.
