the simple things in life are often the best



...like sitting down and having a cup of tea with my sis.
(how adorable is her china!?)

friday...



i'm coming "home"!
to beautiful tasmania where i grew up.
for an extended stay to catch up with my darling family and friends.
and to enjoy frosty mornings, country living, road trips and snuggling up in front of the fire...

pizza! pasta! gelato! vino!


as you may have guessed, all i did in italy was eat.
ok, not all the time, but it was a lot about the food and a few drinks of course.
but italy was just incredible.
so much to see, so much culture, so much history.
i also made some great friends.
boating around the island of capri and swimming though the green grotto in the mediterranean had to be a highlight.
and venice was amazing... and hiking through the cinque terre... and pompeii... and so so much more.
what an experience!

canals, coffee, kroketten, calm and a kindred spirit


experiencing the ‘mother country’ – the netherlands – was one of the best times of my life.
strange and unexpected but true.
the greatest blessing was becoming wonderful friends with my best friend’s little sister leah.
two aussie girls in holland makes for some very amusing moments.
i have never felt so relaxed or spent so much time laughing.
plus there was the AMAZING food, great new friends, breathtaking scenery, long bike rides, scootering adventures, daylight til 11pm, dancing, swimming, running, guitar playing, boat riding, caravan living and so, so, so much more.
i keep being asked why i didn’t travel more in those three weeks, seeing that countries like germany and france are on holland’s doorstep, but the experience i was having far outweighed the desire for travelling alone and sightseeing.
i do believe the travel bug has bitten me, so i’m definately going back to that part of the world again!


my italian adventures will be coming soon...

dutch train slide



oh i love this.
installed next to a stairway at the newly renovated railway station overvecht in the city of utrecht, the slide offers travellers the opportunity to quickly reach the railway tracks when they’re in a hurry.
go you great dutchies!
check out the full story here.

cycle on



one of my favourite activities in holland was to grab to push bike and just ride!
i absolutely loved just taking off down the little dutch country lanes and getting myself 'lost'.
plus it probably kept me from gaining 10kg from all the delicious dutch delights.
i could eat croquettes all day!

the traveller returns



hoi! ciao!
i'm back from my wonderful european adventure.
ok, truthfully i've been back for a few jet-lagged days already.
struggling with staying awake at appropriate times, let alone doing much.
but for you dears, i've found some time and energy to edit some photos to give you a tiny taste of the delights i experienced in holland and italy.
i'll post more on my trip in the next few weeks.

photos from top: little friesland clogs, my newest-most-darling-friend leah, canals in giethoorn, yours truly, the colosseum in rome at night, rose relaxing on the boat in capri, beautiful old town of assisi, ancient statue in florence.
