First published on September 20, 2012. Steve and I finished our year of madness travels with a trip around Turkey, and the country left us both captivated. Both frustrating and beautiful. A bizarre mixture of tradition and modernity. And let's not even mention the food! They say everything has to come to an end, and… Continue reading From the archives: And so it ends…
First published March 27, 2012 To this day Leeds is still one of my favourite places to have visited in the UK. #justsaying Dangerous. Boring. Dirty. It's fair to say Leeds was one city I travelled to grudgingly with my many pre-conceptions, all of which were bad, firmly in place.

It was my second time to Scotland, but Steve, despite having lived in London had never explored north. There were coy pubs and cold days spent walking, live music and football games. Excellent. First published… Continue reading Edinburgh: the windy city

Just a whole day in a new city with some comfy shoes, my MP3 player and a decent map and I'm… Continue reading I wondered while I wandered
Ah nostalgia. I was thinking about this post I wrote on my old blog Red Robin Blue six years ago, and decided to slowly start to move posts over here. That was a blog for a traveller, and once I returned back to Oz I just couldn't find me feet there anymore. But to the point… Continue reading A song for every occasion
