A ROAD TRIP TO JERVIS BAY NATIONAL PARK

Jervis Bay National Park is the perfect place for a quick getaway when you need to escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney living. This stunning national park is located about a 3-hour drive from Sydney and offers not only the worlds whites beach but also whale watching and fishing opportunities and lots of Aboriginal heritage.

Sunsets in Sydney are scandalously beautiful! If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you would often see me attempting to capture these sunsets from different locations throughout Sydney. On a warm winters evening I ventured over to Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair in the Royal Botanic Gardens to see if Sydney would put on a bedtime show that night, and boy she did. In this post, I will take you with me and show you what it was like.

THE ULTIMATE ULURU TOUR | SLEEPING UNDER THE STARS

Probably one of the coolest holidays I have been on what was a 3-day 2-night trip to Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon and Australia’s most recognizable natural landmarks – Uluru.  I slept underneath a starry night’s sky in a swag, I walked the base route of Ayers Rock and hiked to the Garden of Eden. It was just one thing after another with its unique and breathtakingly beautiful scenery and that all whilst learning about the Aboriginal culture. If you are thinking of taking an organized trip but don’t want to spend a fortune, then check out this blog post. I will take you along with my trip and show you what it was like, whether I recommend going on this tour or even at all. (Spoiler alert: This trip is bloody brilliant)

THE SACRED MONKEY FOREST SANCTUARY IN UBUD | BALI, INDONESIA

If you are planning your first trip to Bali, Indonesia, then a trip to Ubud Monkey Forrest is kind of a must! Ubud Monkey Forest, also known as the Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal, is one of Ubud’s most popular attractions. A natural forest sanctuary that is home to a large horde of grey long-tailed macaques. I visited this sanctuary during my trip to Bali last year. Due to some nastiness at the end of my holiday, I kind of forgot to write a couple of blog posts, including this one. So in this blog post, I will take you along with me to the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary. I will show you the best way to get there, what it costs, what to do and what not to do when wandering around this amazing jungle whilst being surrounded by cheeky monkeys.

7 OF SYDNEY’S BEST BEACHES

Sydney is incredibly blessed with some of the most famous and beautiful beaches in the world – all that sand, sparkling blue ocean and a water temperature that never dips below mild. It’s entirely understandable why spending the day at the beach is a favorite pastime of Sydneysiders. Whether it is summer or winter, you can always find a handful of people on any beach at any location throughout the city. Sydney is blessed with well over 100 beaches in the city, ranging in size from a few meters to several kilometers, located along the city’s Pacific Ocean coastline and its harbors, bays, and rivers. Underneath I will show you 7 of my favorite and most pretty beaches that are in Sydney. From the uber-popular Bondi, Manly, and Palm Beach to the small and oh so pretty Gordons bay or Balmoral Beach.

A MINI-BREAK IN HOBART, TASMANIA

Last week I was on a short mini-break in Tasmania to de-stress, enjoy life and just have a break from my day-to-day working live (managing a hotel is not as easy as most of you will think, its a high-stress job I tell ya). I will be writing lots of cool guides etc about my holiday, but I thought I would share some pictures and a daily guide first. So this post is a sort of photo diary, but then better. (I think)

A TRAVEL GUIDE TO THE ANCIENT CITY | ROME, ITALY

Rome is a city that has an amazing mix of old and new. A city that has kept its stunning and historic buildings whilst moving along in the modern world. You can wander the quaint cobblestone streets with a delicious gelato in your hand whilst walking from one stunning and impressive monument to the next.
