Things I already miss from Japan
Besides the jet lag and figuring out how to get out of the Escher painting otherwise known as Shibuya Station, Japan is treating me good. I have a few days left, but I know I am going to miss more than a few things from the land of the rising…
the year in 15 Instax moments
Are you already bored of all the Year In Travel Lists that have formed a coup and taken over the travelblogosphere? Not wanting to disappoint here’s my addition, but don’t worry there’s no repeated copy/pasted content here or some long essay, but 15 (actual) instant moments I snapped which sum…
My 20 For 2020 – An Update
At the start of the year I put together what I thought would be a realistic and hopeful list of 20 things I wanted to see, do or make in 2020. We’re four months in and I thought I’d do a little round up of where I’m at. Sure I…
16 (Almost) Free Things To Do in Melbourne

Yup! Ironically, travel showed me how to enjoy the little, free things in life, and how to cherish moments we often take for granted while at home. Great post.
