Holy crap! Can this be true? Someone pinch me!
It’s already been one full month of 2011, and I’ve actually managed to follow through on my one photo and one blog post a day project. Huzzah!
What can I say now looking back?
Well, it’s been a process and a chore, but… Read more
About a week into my Russian lessons, I was talked into seeing a movie at the Vefa Center… in Russian… with someone who could understand Russian… while I couldn’t. Oh yes, and it was an English movie that was dubbed over (by the one male voice that seemed to do all the Russian voice overs),… Read more
So, 28 days of trying to take a photo of yourself starts to add up, and I found myself not wanting to be in the photo today whatsoever. I guess there are just times that you would prefer that no one see you or have that feeling like your space is being invaded.
I cherish my space, and my privacy… Read more
Last night was the first Sydney Travel Tribe meet-up of the year. We headed to the open-air Customs House Bar near Circular Quay, which was perfect for such a hot, hot day. We had a couple of special guests which included the social media manager for Flight Center and the wonderful, fellow midwesterner… Read more
I’m a total wuss when it comes to hot and cold. When it’s cold, I hate life, and when it’s hot, I’m a sweaty mess (see photo to the right). It’s Australia Day in Oz, and the heat decided to come at us in full force. Instead of coffee, Pat, our flatmate and… Read more
Day 25: Sleepily Eating My Hot Cross Buns at Brekky
Saying that I’m having trouble focusing today is a bit of an understatement. Whether it has anything to do with yesterday’s post is not clear; it could be the impending holiday approaching (tomorrow is Australia Day down under). With that in mind, today is a day to keep it simple.… Read more
I sat at the doctor’s office today, surrounded by coughing sick people, for almost an hour until it was my turn. Everything went smoothly, quickly, and just how it was hoped. I’m about to be a free woman, in a big way, and I’m excited to see where the future takes me…… Read more
Oh, glorious day. The sun was super bright today in Sydney, so Pat & I took it upon ourselves to do the Bondi to Bronte seaside walk. Excellent choice! We were met with clear skies, beautiful waters and a cool breeze during the 2.5 km (or is it 3.5 km?) walk each way.… Read more
Every so often, I’d like to take the time to give some love to the articles that aren’t on this blog already, but you might be interested in checking out. It’s been quite some time since the last update like this, so there are going to be a few! Sit back, grab a coffee… Read more
The other day I posed the question of how you know whether or not someone is being genuine in their blog. That post received a good number of quality comments that really deserve a read-through (so get on it if you haven’t). I was blown away by the responses, and I loved that people were taking the time to… Read more
Can you find love in a hostel? Two and a half years ago I ended up in Riga, Latvia as I was killing time before heading to Ukraine to teach English. I chatted briefly in passing with a couple of Australian guys in the hostel bedroom, but I think they were too preoccupied… Read more
