I may not have it all figured out or possess the answer to life, however where there is snow, mountains & nature there in lies my heart and soul 🎿❄️🥰.

In September last year we went to Italy, visiting both Rome and Naples for a few days. Rome is such a beautiful place, full of history and great food of course! We did the classic tourist traps, the coliseum, the Forum and Palatine hill, as well at the Vatican City! We found a cat sanctuary that was super cute and Went to the pyramid of Cassius Cestius which was pretty cool too! In Naples we climbed Mount Vesuvius and visited both Pompeii and Herculaneum, which were so interesting! Another place worth a visit that is not as well known around Naples is Castel Sant’Elmo, an old castle and ex prison, with breathtaking views over the city and skyline. The food was the highlight of the trip as Italian food is something I could easily live off, but the stunning architecture and beautiful scenery were incredible too. I loved the street artists and musicians everywhere you went in Rome, It just adds so much character, and it’s something i noticed about Melbourne too! The public transport is so easy and frequent, so you don’t even need to stay in the heart of either city to really appreciate them!
Back in April I took Tom to Croatia for his birthday, it’s somewhere that’s always been on his bucket list. We stayed in Dubrovnik which was beautiful and historical, if a little pricey! We did the classic tourist must do’s, such as the city walls walk and the cable car, which did not disappoint and both came with breathtaking views of the Croatian coastline. We literally pushed the boat out, hiring a small motorboat for the day, to visit the infamous Daksa island. Uninhabited and shunned by the locals for it’s dark past, it was the only way we could visit, which we were dying to do after reading about it online. The atmosphere was particularly eerie, and being someone who believes very much in the paranormal, I was relieved when we made it off in one piece! But I would recommend it massively to anyone who likes a bit of history and something off the beaten track. We took a day trip to Bosnia & Herzegovina, a long day but so worth it, it’s honestly such a beautiful country, so different to anywhere we’ve been before. Back in Dubrovnik we found a museum called War Photo Limited, there was so much talent and emotion in such a small gallery, a must do if that’s your kind of thing!
I was lucky enough to visit Dubai and Abu Dhabi with Georgi and Chris earlier this year. Hosted by Georgi’s dad Geoff, we managed to save all of our money for seeing and doing nearly everything that was on offer and had an incredible trip. I can now say I’ve been up the tallest structure in the world and on an island shaped like a palm tree! Dubai is such a beautiful place, it’s so different having stunning sandy beaches in a mass of concrete, sat in the middle of a desert. It was never somewhere that was particularly high up on my list of places to visit but it’s somewhere that massively surpassed my expectations! So many people assume that it’s exclusively a playground for the rich and famous but there’s so much to do within a more attainable budget! My top recommendations would probably be the Madinat (both day and evening!) or a desert trip! The Dubai Frame was awesome too but don’t believe the opening times you read on the internet as we ended up with a lot of time to kill.. @dubai
