Cairns-mas! Festive in FNQ

Cairns-mas! Festive in FNQ

My first Christmas in Cairns in five years! My first Australian summer in almost as long. It’s safe to say I was unpleasantly hot, sweaty and swollen but equally as excited, relaxed and melancholic to spend a week of holidays in my old hometown. I went through a range of feelings while in Cairns; nostalgia, confusion, … Continue reading

Danish Christmas at the Tivoli

Danish Christmas at the Tivoli

Also known as the weekend I put on approximately 5kg in one evening. My blogging hiatus is over and this post is a throwback to my first experience of Scandinavian Christmas dinner. I’m still unsure if our dinner at the Relsteds’ was representative of all Danes’ Christmas traditions or just those of my friend’s family but let me … Continue reading

Hiking in Santorini

Driving down the California coast was an exception to the norm; I could’ve been driving the stretch between Brisbane and Cairns in Australia. The beautiful beaches and sunshine reminded … Continue reading

San Francisco Cityscapes

San Francisco Cityscapes

We spent three glorious days in San Francisco while I was staying in the Bay Area with Sarah. We hit all the touristy spots and enjoyed them with the confident stride of locals.  We wandered from the vibrant Castro to Chinatown (much much bigger than I imagined it to be); from Haight and all its smells … Continue reading

Duck&PastryFest2016: anniversaire in Bordeaux

Duck&PastryFest2016: anniversaire in Bordeaux

A birthday wouldn’t be a birthday without  a good amount of pastry and wine. At least my birthday wouldn’t be! Faced with the final year of my 20s, I decided all I really wanted to do was revisit beautiful South West France and relive a bit of my time spent in the region surrounding Bordeaux…over three … Continue reading
