We’ve all done it, made mistakes while we’re travelling. Even if it’s a tiny mistake, it can be enough to throw your whole trip off, cost you a little more money or leave you wondering what you missed out. These are some of the mistakes I’ve made while travelling. Whether I’ve learned from them or not is a different thing…… View Post

Sydney. It’s my favourite city on earth. There’s no doubt about that. The lively, cosmopolitan feel of the centre, the gorgeous variety of beaches hugging the coastline and the surrounding countryside all combines into one delicious place that, in my eyes, is hard to beat. You see, I lived in this beautiful city for a year. One magical year of… View Post
