It's the place where architecture meets horticulture in the most spectacular of ways. Where you can walk under the canopy of 50 metre tall "supertrees," experience being inside a dome filled entirely with flowers or be transported high into the mountains inside a "cloud forest." I was only in Singapore for two nights but during … Continue reading Is this the world’s most impressive Garden?
The truth is I'd never even heard of Klang when I signed up for a tour my hostel was running. I just honed in on the key word food and added my name to the list. Next thing I knew, I, along with six others were in a kombi van, west-bound for a city I'd … Continue reading KL to Klang and the Blue Mosque

Situated only an hour south-east of Melbourne, it boasts a distinct regional flavour: Upmarket beachside towns like Sorrento and Blairgowrie with white sandy beaches on the eastern side, and berry farms, apple orchards, cellar doors, and surf beaches throughout … Continue reading Day Trip from Melbourne to the Peninsula Hot Springs

Even though I haven't been off exploring, I've missed writing so I decided to write about … Continue reading Mishaps in Budapest
Once again, I was keen to find a hike within the urban area of Melbourne rather than something further afield. As it turns out, this week's adventure from Abbotsford Convent, along the Andrews Reserve Trail and the Main Yarra Trail hardly constitutes a hike (at only 3.5km return and flat most of the way). But … Continue reading Hiking Review: Abbotsford & the Main Yarra Trail
