Lake Titikaka, Peru

PicsArt_01-15-02.58.24

Lake Titikaka, the largest navigable lake in the world bordering Peru and Bolivia. Early morning, we jumped on board what our local tour guide cheekily coined: ‘the Andean Limo’, which consisted of tuk tuk drivers on bicycle, to be transported to the harbor where boats to Lake Titikaka awaited us. I can imagine this to be a rather eyebrow raising […]

Iguazu falls, Argentina/Brazil

IMG_20160203_172113.jpg

Visiting the Iguazu Falls was definitely the highlight of our South America trip. We touched down at Cataratas del Iguazú International Airport on a stinking hot 35 degrees tropical afternoon. Since there wasn’t enough time to properly see the falls that day, we decided to spend our sunset hours at the triple frontier, a border landmark that […]

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Hola Buenos Aires! Happy new year! I’m sitting in a dark tango themed hotel room writing this and it’s 6am Buenos Aires time (or 8:15pm Melbourne time), which means yay we made it across to the other side of the world in a tin can machine in one piece! It was definitely a trippy feeling, […]

Autumn in Bright #2

PicsArt_05-29-04.20.47.jpg

Where is beauty to be found? In great things that, like everything else shall cease to exist one day, or in small things that aspire to nothing, yet know how to set a jewel of infinity in a single moment? After a hectic week, I escaped to Bright with Dan, Lydia and Percival for some much needed […]

Majestic Europe

print version highlights (6 of 422)

  Here I am in Paris! The 5 days I spent in Paris was probably my favorite time in Europe. It was a time for solo reflection and doing things entirely on my own terms. The bus stopped outside a Parisian terminal at the crack of dawn. Through my groggy state of little sleep from […]

Paris

honeymooning (44 of 91)

Sitting by the sidewalk, the world passes by, At the crossroad atop the Seine river, Busy faces, carefree faces, a colourful mix of races, As the sun waves goodbye and twilight weaves its magic, The city of light comes to life. Beautiful faces, strange places, Majestic buildings sprawl as far as the eye can see, […]

Japan / Mt Fuji Climb

Life isn’t about how many breaths you take, but the moments that take your breath away. I have stopped sleeping inside. A house is too small, too confining. I want the whole world, and the stars, too. (Sue Hubbell, 1986) View from Mt Fuji, 9pm   The Mt Fuji Climb It was an easy ascent […]

A friend once told me that there was a town in Victoria where they planted lots of deciduous European trees that look extra colorful in Autumn. After knowing this region also boasts a few hatted restaurants and some great local seasonal produce, we decided that a foodies weekend was called for! An indulgence of taste […]

White Night, Melbourne

1 white (3 of 10)

It’s been months since I woke up so early to see the sunrise. White Night Melbourne at 5am was devoid of the usual jam-packed crowd. The balmy summer’s night carried an air of mystery and ethereal quality with the many artistic displays and installations. Occasionally we would lie on the grass or beanbags, watching trippy […]
