Wednesday Wanderlust: Helsinki

What’s amazing about Helsinki? It isn’t flat but the city is easy enough to navigate around, they use the euro, it’s pretty clean and the people are really friendly. This place is regularly inundated with cruise ship tourists and I did find that lots of things (lik the hop-on-off-bus) caters for their schedules, but this […] Read more…

Wednesday Wanderlust: Washington DC

What’s amazing about Washington DC? Washington DC has a good mix of historical stuff that was relatable (even as an Aussie), new things to experience and is a structured city which makes it pretty hard to get lost when walking around it.  I also liked to think that in a lot of place you are […] Read more…

Wednesday Wanderlust: Paris

What’s amazing about Paris? You can wander this place for days and still feel like you haven’t seen it all.

What’s amazing about Prague? As I have mentioned before, especially in places that have a lot to see and do, I nearly have to force myself to go to at least one museum. You can emerce yourself in a city and take in a lot of the culture but understanding the history is also good. […] Read more…

four images from different lakes in Canberra

Wednesday Wanderlust: Canberra

What’s amazing about Canberra? A lot and nothing all at the same (that sounds mean, let me explain). After being in a city like Shanghai that has a population larger than Australia, it makes some Australian cities feel pretty small. Regardless of this, most other cities in Australia are still full of the hustle and […] Read more…

Wednesday Wanderlust: Shanghai

What’s amazing about Shanghai? All around the city are these beautifully manicured gardens that make places like the metro stations and bridges look a lot nicer. There was a giant Magnolia tree with flowers bigger than your head and hydrangeas flowering. There were topiaries of dolphins and other wildlife dappled through the gardens. On the […] Read more…
