Hi and welcome to my space. I’m glad you’re here.
I’ve always loved exploring, discovering new places and writing about my experiences so it seems only natural that I am where I am. Travelling, writing and seeing my stories in print was always a dream of mine.
It took years (and lots of rejections and perseverance) to fulfil my dream, but today I’m thrilled to call myself a full time freelance writer. It’s exciting to be contributing regularly to a number of well established Australian travel magazines, which you can view here.
Since 2018 I’ve also fulfilled another dream of having my own travel column in the well respected Australian travel magazine On the Road.
And then there’s my blog, where you’ve landed.
There are thousands, if not millions, of travel blogs on the internet. However this is not your normal, “where to go” and “what to do” travel blog.
I’ll take you beyond the ordinary “what to see” and, with my words and pictures, I’ll immerse you in the experience and the feeling of a place. This blog is a combination of travel/adventure/photography/destination and motivational lifestyle. It’s about living authentically, mindfully and enjoying the moments, wherever you might be. I’ll show you the best of Australia through my eyes and I’ll write it incorporating deeper meaning and messages.
Today my passion in life is inspiring others to get out and travel and to see the bigger picture.
My dream is to travel the width and breadth of Australia with my intrepid partner in our new caravan and document all of it, on paper, in photos, through this blog and on video. My aim is to produce a travel and lifestyle coffee table book on our travels and ultimately my own magazine that incorporates travel and wellbeing, a holistic way of experiencing Australia. I’ll be working and collaborating with other talented writers.
While I’m taking steps to achieve my dream I’ll continue to write articles and share my musings and adventures on this blog.
I live on the outskirts of Melbourne and I’m blessed to have a husband who shares my sense of adventure. With both my children grown up and one still at home I’m almost an empty-nester. This is my time of self-discovery again.
When I’m not travelling I enjoy the simple pleasures of life: learning, keeping fit, walks with my dog, dance and Zumba, playing my guitar, cooking, good food, red wine, dark chocolate, enjoying live concerts, spending time with friends and making the most out of life. I’m a big believer in turning ordinary moments into extraordinary ones.
Loving life on and off the tracks. This is where I’ll share my life, not just on the tracks but close to home. Adventure is found everywhere, it’s simply how you look at life.
Feel free to reach out to me if you’d like to collaborate. Or just drop by and say hello. I’ll always reply.
Happy travels. Here’s to enjoying the journey together.
