Why I’m Considering Ditching My ‘Living List’

I’ve realised that a list is limiting. It limits you from seeing amazing places that you may not have heard of before and realistically, If I updated the list of places I’m learning about along the way, I would never get to any of them. It would be too overwhelming! So, maybe it’s time to ditch the list and follow my instincts… go with the flow, as it were.

Cockatoo Island

Why Cockatoo Island is one of Sydney’s Secret Gems

While most Sydneysiders know about Cockatoo Island, few have ever visited, let alone stayed overnight. I was one of those people.

Perth. It’s Worth Going the Distance.

Yeah, Perth seems like a long way to go, especially if you’re in Australia for a short time, but after finally getting there myself after too many years, I can tell you with great certainty: It’s worth going the distance. Perth is what Australia used to be like, the Australia I knew growing up. Lovely, friendly people. Big town atmosphere. Easy to get around. No stress. Easy living. And then there is the amazing history, culture and natural beauty that is all so accessible.
