These past few weeks have been some of the most difficult of my life.  Everything I thought I knew to be true was turned on its head… forcing me to re-evaluate my future and everything else in between.  The only thing left to do is take a leap of faith and believe that eventually, everything will be alright.


Nike Free 5.0

I can finally understand the hype around Nike free’s. Although I could never run in them (my old man knees would never cope) they are an almost perfect casual walking travel shoe. And yes, I happily wear sneakers when travelling – gone are the days when fashion trumps comfort.  Hence why you’ll only ever see waist-up travel photos of me 🙂

I was born with a reading list I will never finish

After my Nook died a premature death, I put off buying another e-reader, namely because there wasn’t (at that time) a good enough choice here in Australia. Ended up ordering the Kindle Paperwhite when it got released through a parcel forwarder and a (loooong) 3 months later it finally arrived.  Since I got it last December there’s rarely a day that goes by without it being switched on – I’ve powered through so many books (some better than others) but it has completely re-kindled (ha) my love for reading.

And for those supporters of paper only books – I can see your point, but try carting around the hardback version of A Dance With Dragons on the bus every day and it might just change your mind…
