10 More Signs That I’m Back in Australia

I recently reflected on 10 signs that remind me I’m back in Australia: my home country, the country I’ve lived away from for the past 12 years and the country I’ve grown to appreciate the more I travel around the world. But it’s not just the literal signs I’ve noticed – the wildlife road signs, […]

(View of Cradle Mountain, taken from Hansons Peak) It took me 38 years, 51 countries and 7 continents before I set foot on Australia’s southern-most state, Tasmania.  This may not sound like a big deal – except that I am Australian! I have travelled all over the world in search of adventure, to enjoy breath-taking […]

Through The Lens: Yorke Peninsula, South Australia

South Australia is often overlooked by visitors to the country, overshadowed by the more famous attractions of its neighbouring states.  It’s often overlooked by Australians themselves and as a resident of Adelaide for a decade, I was guilty of exactly that.

Through The Lens: Autumn in the Adelaide Hills (Australia)

“The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land: it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” (G.K. Chesterton) Nearly two months ago I rented out my flat in London, put my belongings into storage and headed to Heathrow with a one-way ticket.  As […]

Through The Lens: Fleurieu Peninsula (South Australia)

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” (Marcel Proust) As I write this, I am sitting in my parent’s backyard, strategically positioning myself to enjoy the warmth of the sunshine whilst avoiding glare on my laptop’s screen.  I am multi-tasking between editing photographs from a recent trip […]
