2017, A job to write about, and some nice photos

Hello world and HELLOOOOO 2017, how are ya you shiny little thing. (It’s now February, and I wrote this in Jan but I’m lazy, so lets just pretend). So 2016, despite bringing the Earth some (well a lot) of horrors, was a hell of a year for me. I climbed Machu Picchu, travelled a whole lot, lived (still do) in Australia, did some volunteering, learnt some Spanish, decided to be Vegetarian.. the list could go on. It was a fab year for all of those reasons, but also a hard one for all those reasons. Being away from home for the…

The Grounds, Alexandria. Flowers, food and lots of photos. 

I’d been lusting after this place ever since some photos popped up on Instagram. Blue skies, flower galore, and food in abundance – The Grounds is a place of dreams. We went on a Saturday with 8 of our housemates and it was chaos to say the least. So so so busy, we were running around trying to take it all in and avoid the hoards of people. That being said, we managed to get a table in the restaurant pretty sharpish. The food was nice and the company even better. But if you do go to visit I’d say…

Botanicals and the Blue Gum Walk

Who doesn’t love a nice walk on a Sunday? Especially when it’s in the Australian bushland, which turns out to be just an hours train ride from Sydney city centre.

Below is a nice little selection of beautiful houses, balconies, flowers, colours that caught my eye whilst I’ve been travelling. Must.Stop.Taking.So.Many.Photos. But somethings are just too lovely not to document. Houses from… Cartegena (Colombia), Caye Caulker (Belize), Copan (Honduras), and Newtown (Current residence, Sydney).  

Winter Garden

These days when I get home the last thing I want to do is look at a screen. I want to read, I want to write, I want to paint, I want to do anything that is paper based and feels real – but that’s how I stay sane as my job means looking at a PC all day. This also means that I take so many photos that never make it onto my laptop, or they do – then they sit there unedited gathering dust for weeks as I can’t face a computer screen in my spare time. Which…
