Today marks our last day in Asia for 2018. We fly home to Australia tomorrow 🛫😳⠀
⠀
This isn’t the end of a holiday and back to 9-5 (at least not anytime soon), but it is the end of an era & it *officially* feels like this chapter of our life is closing.⠀
⠀
P.S. This week also happens to be our 3 year anniversary. Go us 👊🏻🥰 #powercouple ⠀

You wouldn’t think there’d be much of a weather / heat difference between KL & Phuket... BUT THERE IS 😬⠀
⠀
If in KL, book a hotel or @airbnb with a rooftop pool or risk the only relief being multiple shopping malls blasting AC & Christmas Carols 🙊⠀
⠀
We love staying at The Robertson in Bukit Bintang because 2x pools, epic gym facilities (I’m walking on the tready right now 😅) & views of the Petronas Towers + KL Tower 🙌🏻🙏🏻⠀
⠀
Have you ever been to KL? Or just passed through? Next time your connecting flight ✈️ goes through this city – Stop. Book a few days & experience its wonder.⠀

Off to Malaysia we go before heading home to Australia & NZ 🛫⠀
⠀
What a ride, Thailand 🇹🇭 thankful for this journey – for the time you’ve allowed me to find my feet, try new things (Muay Thai & riding a scooter) & adventure to watch the sunset each day ✌🏻💫⠀
⠀
I leave with a heavy heart, I feel this journey was just beginning, but as it happens – a new chapter is unfolding. 👰🏼👫

DOUBLE TAP if you’re all about that life. ✌🏻💫⠀

Reflecting on life 12 months ago until now – after a year of travel & living in Asia. ✌🏻⠀
⠀
I’m planning for a BIG 2019 in New Zealand, Australia, and... you’ll have to wait & see. 💛🛫⠀

How has life changed for you in the past 12 months?

Soaking up every last day in paradise 🇹🇭⠀
⠀
This secluded bay is just a short drive through The Nai Harn; our first time at Ao Sane & it didn’t disappoint 🤙🏻🌴⠀
⠀
🛫 We leave Phuket & our Chalong apartment mid-next week for a week in Kuala Lumpur. I’ve been many times over, but drop any recommendations below (adventure, bars, waterfalls, Insta locations) 👇🏻

〰️ 7 days until our 6 months of calling Phuket, Thailand 🇹🇭 home is over! 😫⠀
⠀
End of an era. At first, life here wasn’t ‘me’ – cue lack of gratitude because I missed home & soy flat whites.⠀
⠀
When I returned in July with fresh eyes, Phuket stole my heart. 💛 There’s more than meets the eye on this island & I urge you to come here just once, to watch the sun set each day. Life-changing. ✌🏻⠀
⠀
We’ll be back! We’re even looking into property down south. 🙌🏻⠀
⠀
Have you been to Phuket? Did you know there’s waterfalls & secluded beaches & amazing fitness communities? 🙊 ...oh, and there’s Bangla Road 😬⠀

“Travel is not a reward for working. It’s education for living.”⠀
〰️ Anthony Bourdain⠀
⠀
I will never understand the two-week holiday.⠀
The ‘reward’ of travel after slaving a 50-week year.⠀
Those without passports – a gateway to new worlds, dreams & adventures.⠀
⠀
It’s not a lack of money, it’s a lack of courage. 💛⠀
⠀
🛫 What have you learned on your travels?

〰️ Looking forward to getting back on home soil & earning more @velocityfrequentflyer points. 💥⠀
⠀
Whenever I fly domestic, I always fly with my points -- the best part is, on my last trip up to the Sunny Coast, my family was able to share the points. Win-win! 🙌🏻⠀
⠀
Plus, you can fly to over 600 destinations. Perfect for #digitalnomads (like me!) and families in need of a break somewhere tropical. 🌴 ⠀

〰️ A lot of my followers probably perceive my life as perfect; a wonderful journey of new experiences & limitless freedom.⠀
⠀
It is, but it isn’t.⠀
⠀
Technically, I’m homeless for most of the year.⠀
I don’t have a fancy wardrobe.⠀
I have only 4 pairs of shoes, including @adidasnz trainers & hiking boots.⠀
I mostly ‘own’ fitness gear for necessity & when I want to go out, I recycle the same two outfits because #minimalism.⠀
⠀
On Friday nights, I can’t just call up the girls & go dancing.⠀
There’s new mates, that become fast friends, and then, they’re gone as quick as they came.⠀
My only deep conversations each day happen with my partner. We’re lucky to have each other.⠀
I’m lonely a lot, working on my own in cafes & writing / producing content for hours on end.⠀
⠀
My future is always uncertain.⠀
I don’t have an employer to pop cash in my superannuation. I don’t have bonuses or a guaranteed monthly income.⠀
⠀
It’s only been since planning (and paying for) a wedding that I’ve felt truly indifferent about this lifestyle.⠀
👉🏻 How can we sustain this? How can we continue the dream AND feel settled at the same time?⠀
👉🏻 How can we not miss out on the fun, but still jet off & explore new landscapes?⠀
⠀
In just 3 weeks I’ll be leaving this lifestyle behind, for now, to settle in Australia & NZ for 3 months before we get married. 💍⠀
⠀
Looking forward to this downtime, but also unsure what’s next for me – all I know is my energy will be in the clients & projects of @harveststudios & @thelogostore.co 💥

SWIPE 👉🏻 to see the before shot.⠀
⠀
💥 Editing is more than half the battle of a ‘good’ Instagram shot.⠀
⠀
Take this, for example:⠀
One of the most beautiful sunsets we’d seen here in Phuket & I didn’t bring my #fujifilmxt20 to the beach with me.⠀
⠀
With only my iPhone and my #instagramhusband, we took a few shots & I thought nothing of them. Only when I did a few edits, did I feel like this shot was just as beautiful as one of my camera shots.⠀
⠀
Currently creating more content around taking the ‘perfect’ shot and editing from your iPhone.⠀
⠀
Give me a 🤙🏻 if you’d watch a vid or read a blog post on how to edit your pics like a #travelinfluencer 💫
