Her Mati- Lindsey.

The more women I meet, the more impressed I am by this unique sense of self and sense of empowerment that they shine outwardly, without even being in the spotlight or making a fuss. I’m talking about just regular females who might not have the followers, but yet have travelled to so many amazing places and have wisdom to impart that so many younger girls would find inspirational. It seems like such a shame that I should have these encounters and not share them in some way, so this series hopes to make a big fuss about these incredible mujers, so that they can have a space to be celebrated.

Swim Good.

Photo of me mid cry for your own personal reference.

For a  really really long time now (each of my family members will attest to this), I have talked about moving away. Brisbane as much as I appreciate it’s laid-back vibe and overall amazing weather, had outgrown me a bit and it became time to start looking for a pair of big girl pants to change in to.

So the first day I landed I Melbourne, it surprised me that I burst into tears on three separate occasions. The first instance was when I lost the piece of paper that contained my wifi password on it, and that I was specifically told by reception not to lose as they wouldn’t issue another one. Somehow between reception and one floor above that, I lost that God damn piece of paper. And so I did what any mature 27-year-old would do, and proceeded to go to my room and cry. Read more ›

Real Recognises Real: Sully (Part 1)

Taken by me

Everyone that I spoken to about Sully, has come to regard her as ‘my gypsy friend that travels the world and lives a pretty sweet life.’ Well I’m here to tell you..that it’s all very real, and decided that it was time that more people knew about the amazing places, people and things she has experienced over the past few years. Of course there is more to the story than just her perpetual wanderlusting, and it’s these kinds of details I want to get into. Because what I love about RRR, is that its about appreciating that we all have the ability to inspire, even if the person doing the inspiring isn’t famous on social media. So brace yourself, this girl has done some amazing things.  Read more ›

What I learnt- 6 Months of Travel

Waiting time- snapped by me in some airport..somewhere.

Last year I made a split decision that would have a pretty big effect on the rest of my year. After spending many months being unhappy in my general life situation, one night I found myself driving past an adventure store and promptly did an illegal U-turn to try and make my way to it. Half an hour later, I walked out with a backpack and idea that I would be spending some time backpacking through South America. Yes it was impulsive, and I’m sure many people would have lumped me into the typical Gen Y-eternal-wanderlust seeking category, but I didn’t really care. Nor did I particularly care that my parents weren’t too pleased about the whole idea, and that I would be putting my non-existent career on hold to go chase some South-American fantasy. I made a choice that felt so intuitively right at the time that all of that outside noise just seemed irrelevant. Read more ›
