#beachthursday – Port Melbourne Beach

It's #beachthursday & today's beach is from the place I like to call home, Melbourne. To be fair, Melbourne isn't known for its beaches. It is known for a lot of other really great qualities, but it does have some nice beaches where you can relax & enjoy a day in the sun on the city's doorstep.

Do you think I would make a good male model? I don't! Maybe a hand model if I start moisturising. What I do enjoy though, is trying to look nice from what I have. Living out of a backpack can be tough. You get tired of wearing same clothes over & over again, with mixing & matching the only option.

Blue Purple Tilt at the Tate Modern

Some folks art galleries, some folks can't stand them. I love them, especially new age ones like the Tate Modern in London, England. The Tate Modern is housed inside the converted Bankside Power Station & is the most visited modern art gallery in the world with 4.7 million visitors per year.

The Incredible Roads of the French Alps

I'll be honest, I don't like GPS navigation systems. I'm a map person through & through. I love to study a map, absorb the alternative routes & remember it with my photographic memory. But while driving through the French alps, I couldn't help myself & set up the GPS purely so I can see the road ahead.

#FriFotos – Stars: Viva Elvis at Aria, Las Vegas

This week's #FriFotos theme is Stars. My time in Las Vegas was a blur. I spent six days in Sin City & spent nearly the whole time awake having the time of my life. I was in the best seat in the house for Viva Elvis, a Cirque de Soleil show at Aria, with amazing acrobatics on show as I drift off into a deep sleep.

#beachthursday – Playa Calahonda 2

It's #beachthursday time again! This week I return to the beautiful hidden pebble beach in Nerja, Andalucía, Spain. The tiny pebbles wrap around your toes as you walk to the shore or the cafe serving ice cold drinks in the hot Mediterranean sun. I love this beach, the only thing missing is sand.

My all-time favourite road trip food

We have embarked on an epic road trip, heading north to the Arctic Circle to see the northern lights. While visiting one of the many rest stops along the way, I unfortunately got a little addicted to this rest stop delicassi, the bacon pølsa. A foot long pork sausage wrapped in bacon served in a warm bun.

The Long Wait on Le Tour de France

Watching the Tour de France on television & being there are two different things entirely. While following the tour around the French countryside is fun, you have no idea who is leading the stage until the rumble starts. The team cars speed past, the helicopters roar & for a brief second you see a bike.

Strawberries & Cream at Wimbledon

The Championships at Wimbledon are full of tradition. The All England Lawn Tennis Club site is very compact, getting the spectators very close to the action. After enjoying a Pimms, you wander the courts munching away on too many Strawberries & Cream. I lost count with how many strawberries I ate.

#FriFotos – For Sale: Fresh Scones From The Bakery

This week's #FriFotos theme is: For Sale. About to head out into the lush rolling hills of the Lake District for a day-long hike, I thought we could start the day off with something nice to eat. When I saw these babies for £3, there was no doubt we had just found our motivation to walk further.
