The lessons I learned from a working and traveling gap year

March 14, 2017 I’ve never been one of those people who always knew what they wanted to do with their life. I envied kids in school who dreamed of being policemen or teachers while I sat twiddling my thumbs at the idea of choosing a career. So when it came to the end of high…

Getting Revenge on Revenge Porn

When footage of Canadian women, Alexis Frulling, engaging in a threesome went viral, she didn’t let it get her down. Instead, she took to the Internet again to post a video talking about said threesome. Women who have been subjected to Internet trolls and photos or videos uploaded without their consent can be made to…

How To Travel As a Vegetarian​

You’re a vegetarian and find yourself sitting at the dinner table, in a home of a family you just met who invited you in to stay, who speak no English, who cooked you dinner and excitedly sit back and wait for you to try their traditional dish, while you look down and see meat floating…

Food In Italy

If anyone has ever tried to tell you that the food in Italy isn’t as good as Italian food in Australia, instantly delete their number, them off Facebook and stop all contact with them immediately. They aren’t the type of people you need in your life. Food in Italy is on its own scale of…

FINALLY making it to Italy

I have dreamed of visiting Italy since my first day of school, where I learned to count to ten and say ‘good morning’. I’m sad to say my Italian never extended beyond this, but boy did I good morning the shit out of everyone in my three weeks in Italy. Although our Italian never improved…

Places To Visit If You Want To Skip The Tourist Traps of Europe!

Instead of The Amalfi Coast, visit Montenegro: although the coast deserves all its fame it gets, the mass swarm of tourists can be a deterrent. The coastline of Montenegro offers some serious competition, complete with high mountain ranges, scary windy roads, and colorful houses. The little tourists and cheap prices compared to the Amalfi coast…

The Best Way To Visit The Colosseum

A tip to beating the hours of waiting for the Colosseum, and it doesn’t include listening to the annoying sales people out the front. A trip to Rome is never complete without a visit to the famous Colosseum. Even with the mass number of tourists and long lines, it is something everyone must do when…

The Amalfi Coast

Usually, when you have extremely high expectations of a place, it’s very unlikely that they ever meet up with them. The Amalfi coast, however, did. The Amalfi Coast has been written on my sticky notes on my computer under ‘places to travel to’ since I can remember, so when I booked a ticket to Europe…

Overland Travel and Why You Should Do It

Although there is something exciting about boarding a plane, watching hours worth of free movies, having a terrible upright sleep and waking up a few hours later in a completely foreign country, ditching air travel altogether opens up so many more opportunities. A few years ago now my boyfriend, Tyral, told me of his dream…

The Coast of Montenegro, The Most Beautiful Place in Europe

I swear every country I visit I say it’s my favourite or most beautiful, but I think I finally found a winner. Montenegro took my breath away every time we turned one of it’s crazy windy roads.

Visit Albania Before Everyone Else Does

It’s turned out on my trip so far that the countries I’ve heard so much about, the popular tourist destinations, have been my least favorite countries. The countries I know nothing about, the ones we planned the shortest amount of time in and basically just used as a path towards another country, have been my…
