Riding trains in Italy is like a free tour through the beautiful country… only it’s not actually free. But it’s really reasonable and much more enjoyable to take in the scenery than trying to navigate roads and parking (parking? What like that tiny spot there? Pfft). And you won’t be disappointed with the views: poppy […]
If you ever find yourself in Dalat, high up in the mountains in the south of Vietnam, then you should seriously consider spoiling yourself with an overnight stay in the Crazy House.
As I’ve travelled, I’ve given streets names of my own to help me navigate: coffee street, food street, bar street, temple street, etc. Unfortunately in Japan, I’ve had to add an extra name to a couple of the smaller towns: Groper Street. You see, as my friend and I were walking from the train to […]
Lately, I’ve found myself tired most days. And don’t get me wrong, I’m still having an absolutely awesome time. I don’t know if I’ve become travel weary after 3 months of travelling, or maybe I just need a couple of good night’s sleep not in a dorm room. It’s a strange feeling for me. I’m […]

The 46th floor of the Central Plaza Building on Hong Kong Island is a completely empty floor. There’s no furniture, no music, no souvenir shop, no tour groups, and when I went, no people either.

Travel, particularly solo travel, is full of hellos and goodbyes. We all drift from town to town on our own path, discovering, experiencing, and just being. And along the way, we make connections with people who would otherwise be strangers to us. Sometimes, the interactions are fleeting, as much as a quick conversation before one […]
For the first time in two months, my clothes won’t smell of BBQ smoke, my knees won’t get bruised from sitting up against tiny tables, and I won’t stand out in a crowd. I’m in Hong Kong. And it feels a lot like every other modern city, Melbourne included. It’s clean (enough), busy, noisy, lively. […]
