Travel completes me. My eyes light up when I think about it and once I start talking you cannot stop me. I waste all my time planning new adventures and researching new exotic places and learning about the history of different cities and cultures. It makes me happier than anything in the whole world. When I’m planning and dreaming and actually travelling it just feels RIGHT. You can read about this realisation here.
After coming home from my fourth overseas holiday in 5 years and being unable to stop talking I finally decided to make a blog to record my adventures and tell my stories.
I’m an Aussie girl but a European at heart. My first trip was to France on exchange when I was 16 in 2009. Since then I have continued to explore Europe but hopefully I will see the rest of the whole wide world one day.
From November 2013 – March 2014 I lived and studied in Prato, Italy. I studied Dante, Medieval and Renaissance History and Italian. Living abroad was the most incredible experience. I loved being immersed in a culture and getting to know all the nooks and crannies of a city that you miss out on when you only visit for a few days. I loved getting to know the people. I loved the food. I loved everything about it.
I have a passion for history (particularly medieval and renaissance) , ballet, theatre, languages, tasty desserts and sweets, tacky souvenirs, people and beautiful scenery.
Explore the world with me 🙂
