Tips for home hunting.

September 20, 2016

I move around a lot and the thing that is the most stressful is finding somewhere to live. Finding that special place you can call home and hang up your jockstrap isn’t always easy. I was asked today if I had any tips for finding a place so here are my top tips when looking for a new home. Use your network. Most of the time I have found a…


Home is where the heart is.

August 11, 2016

It’s home time, Wooohoooo! I landed in Melbourne last night. It’s sooooooo good to be home. my family were all waiting for me at dinner and my little cousins came running up to me when they saw me. They are adorable. It’s good to be home and although I am jet lagged as fuck I’m feeling pretty good from someone who has spent the last 24 hours travelling. Leg one…


Keeping my goals in perspective.

July 27, 2016

So now that I have some time to step back and take a look at the last 2 years I am surprised by how well things have worked out. I set myself some pretty big goals and despite how I have felt about not achieving them the reality is very different. I’ve been much more negative over the past 2 years than I should have been. It’s a cycle that I’m…


A change of scene.

July 26, 2016

Last week was my last week of work here in London and also my last week in my beautiful balcony room. I’ve moved in with a couple of BFF’s for my last two weeks in London before I head home to Melbourne. It feels good now that work is finished. Although it’s been an intense 12 months here it feels good to reach the end and have achieved something. Many…

I just got home from the London Pride parade for a quick change before heading out for some dancing and celebrating with friends and I thought I’d share these pictures straight out of the camera with you. What an amazing Parade this year with all the wonderful colour, flesh, music and paegentry we’ve come to expect from these events and also for some reason a giant Burrito. Happy Pride everybody….



June 7, 2016

I’m glad that I made a point of leaving the UK for a short trip two weeks ago during a break from the hectic schedule at work. Some friends of mine were in Barcelona and they invited me to join them. It was a great chance to escape the grim weather in London and get some vitamin D. Barcelona is one of my favourite places but my first trip was…


Im starting to think about what the next adventure will be.

May 11, 2016

I’m coming to the end of this trip to the UK. It’s been nearly a year and I am looking forward to moving on. I’m here for another two months and I am starting to think about what my next adventure will be. I’ve had an offer to do some more exploring around Edinburgh which I am keen to take up and I’m thinking about heading over to Barcelona again…


The sun is out and my mood is up.

May 9, 2016

  When I said that my mood and my homesickness would probably change when the sun came out I don’t think I really realised just how much. The weather over the last few days has been amazing and all though is going to be short lived the change it has made to my mood is crazy good. I’m actually wearing shorts this week. The legs have been getting some air and it…


I’m in LONDON! Just saying…

February 18, 2016

I’m surprised to find out just how many people are still surprised when I tell them I am in London. They are either not reading my blog or instagram or are too busy just looking at the dirty pictures LOL. I’m still in London guys. I have been here for about six months and will most likely be here until July. I’m enjoying my time here mostly but the cold…


Liverpool day two.

January 27, 2016

We awoke on the second day in Liverpool to a very different scene to the day before. The sun was shining and even though the temperature was still in the single digits just seeing my old friend made the day vastly more enjoyable. The amount of available sunlight and my mood are both very closely linked. After a breakfast of local ham, eggs and stale hash browns in the hotel…


Liverpool Day 1.

January 26, 2016

Last week I took a couple of days away to visit Liverpool with a friend. It was a short trip away to break the boredom while I wait for work to start again. It was nice to get out of London but as soon as we arrived in Liverpool it started raining and given that most of what we planned to do was on foot my patience wore pretty thin….


Australia Day warm-up

January 25, 2016

Yesterday I joined a group of Aussies for an early Australia day BBQ and drinks. There is a lot about my country that I am and am not proud of and this time of year the talk kicks up about our treatment of Indigenous Australians, detention centres and other things that are not great about Australia. But when you’re travelling and away from home days like this take on a…
