City 2 Outback with ETSY Australia, featuring Hobart's Evie & Essie.

Beautiful things don’t have to cost the Earth • I was recently a part of @etsyau’s #city2outback adventure featuring Evie and Essie, based in the picturesque foothills of Hobart’s Mt Wellington. The Children’s clothing label Evie & Essie is the joint love of best friends and lifelong crafters Suki Hopgood and Sarah Crawford. Suki and Sarah hosted myself and the Etsy team for a few days, showing us around the unique beauty of Hobart with the city and its surrounds being a constant source of both inspiration and escape.

The Top End with Travel Freedom

The Top End with Travel Freedom

I was really excited to head back to the Northern Territory, this time to explore a new region and parts of the Top End which I hadn’t yet made it to. The Northern Territory is truly is one of my favourite places in Australia and the world; the natural beauty, culture and that night sky are all second to none.

The Courier Mail - Luang Prabang highlights.

Today in the Courier Mail with thanks to Linda Silmalis. helloworld x Insider Journeys. “While Laos is often foolishly skipped by travellers, those who do venture here often come for one of two reasons – to learn more of its wartime past or to spend time with its elephants.”

C O L O M B I A with KATHMANDU.

“I wonder if the things that remind me of you, remind you of me.”  I recently went on a whirlwind (and I really mean whirlwind) adventure to Colombia with Kathmandu. What can I tell you about it? My itch for South America has only just been scratched and I’m left wanting more. We hit the ground running and began filming at the airport in Medellín city. I’ve never hidden that I am not much of a city girl, but I think the cute streets, botanical gardens and salsa-dancing nightlife in Medellín are attractions I’ll go back for.

LAOS with Helloworld and Insider Journeys.

LAOS with Helloworld and Insider Journeys.

Recently I had the unbelievable opportunity to visit “The Land of a Million Elephants,” LAOS with Helloworld and Insider Journeys. I’m going to break this post up into two parts because I’ve travelled to SE Asia multiple times and I hadn’t yet made it to Laos, always adding it to the “I’ll-do-it-next-time-list” and I’ve, as to be expected, fallen head over heals in love with the incredibly, beautiful and untouched country.

It’s not very often at all that I photograph editorials, but I’ll definitely make the exception for my beautiful and incredibly talented friend Joanne; the creator of Altham. A day where everything we had planned went out the window and we found ourselves jumping fences, talking our way out of and narrowly escaping serious trouble (My fault – I’m sorry! Always ask permission first), finding rainbows, chasing fading light and waiting for little rain showers to clear.

Smells Like S U M M E R

Smells Like S U M M E R

I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” I get jaded by social media, constantly torn between balancing what I do for a living with the direction I want to head in.  Continuously thinking about how I’m contributing to the industry and HOW I can better use a “voice” to make a positive difference.

The Streets of Barangaroo

The Streets of Barangaroo

Recently I was invited to Sydney’s newest and exciting waterfront pop up known as the Wulugul Pop Up in the Streets of Barangaroo. A perfect combination of food, culture and harbourside relaxation. I don’t get a chance to visit Sydney very often and it was great to see first hand what’s on offer and spend a few days down there alongside my friend Tara, who I met in Dubai recently, and catching up with my Aunty who coincidentally works above the new promenade and had been raving to me about it just the week before.

Make it count - ‘Next Step’ With G Adventures

Saturday afternoon just gone I was sitting on the beach for hours with one of my best friends, we were discussing the impermanent nature of life and how ‘when we were younger’ (that sentence itself makes me feel old, but what is age?) we used to have countdowns looking forward to certain events or certain holidays.

I wanted to do this post a little different to the way I normally do, because we did a lot of seriously amazing things in Dubai and I’ll let the photographs do the talking, but I just wanted to share the personal highlights for me. So, my top things to do in Dubai:  Adventure, adventure, adventure! Dubai is one of the biggest playgrounds in the world. Take a day trip to the Hatta Hajjar Mountains. Just go and go high! The layers of the mountains and alien like landscape is unreal.

Wollongong is one destination in Australia I’ve always wanted to visit, so when I booked this job earlier in the year I was really excited about it. It would be a working-reunion of sorts with some of my favourite travel buddies and personal mentors. Plus, my friend and ridiculously talented Photographer Will Patino has been showcasing the best of Wollongong for years now and I couldn’t wait to get down there and see it for myself.

Golden daze.

Golden daze.

I’m currently in-between travel jobs and working on exciting projects, which means I’ve been taking some personal time out for myself lately.. Early mornings and sunrise walks, camping underneath the stars at Mt Barney with one of my oldest and best friends, skinny dipping in the middle of the day with Lexi, World Press photo Exhibition and sitting in the rain for hours with my favourite human on this earth, rock pools and golden afternoons in the bay with my roomie, Aimee, car camping, hours of conversation sitting underneath the moon at Bruns and watching the harvest moon rise.
