Greenpatch, Jervis Bay
Travel

I’m really lucky to have been invited along to a camping trip with the boys last weekend, they’re a good bunch. Jervis bay is stunning – the white sands are serene, and the water is so clear. Just a little bit different from camping in Vancouver though. For one, the wildlife isn’t the same. On…

Lipari, Italy
Travel

While brainstorming where to go this summer, a friend told us about the Aeolian Islands in Italy as a destination. It was interesting to arrive in Italy and still hear the Aussie accent all around. Our friend’s grandmother is originally from there before their family immigrated to Australia, and it seemed to be similar stories…

Keswick, Lake District
Travel

On our way back to London after hiking Snowdon in Wales, we passed by the Lake District. It was as quaint and as beautiful as one would imagine from English novels. Everyday started off with a full English breakfast from our B&B. These are probably the only breakfast sausages I would willingly eat again –…

7 Days in Bermuda
Travel

Getting Around Rent a scooter, definitely. You could get from one end of the island to the other within 3 hours of comfortable cruising, why wouldn’t you do it? The local buses are tolerable but you just get more out of traveling by scooter. What To Eat in Bermuda Really very disappointed with almost* every…

Paris, France
Travel

Getting Around in Paris I’m afraid I was quite useless navigating in Paris. I didn’t bother checking maps and just followed my ex boyfriend and his brother around. All the advice I can give is to buy the multi-day or week pass and I’m sure Google Maps will do the rest of the work. Compared…
