• $100 Travel: Krakow, Poland.

    A destination that’s probably not on everyone’s list but absolutely should be, Krakow, Poland. Krakow is probably best known for being just over an hour from Auschwitz, the WWII Nazi concentration camp. Auschwitz is definitely a must do. But our budgets are tight. So just how far can $100 AUD go? Note: With this $100 we will enjoy our time and not stay too conservative. Travelling is about enjoyment so if you want three beers instead of two, Krakow is the place where you’ll get the best bang for your buck, at least here in Europe. In Poland their currency is the Polish Zloty. With $100 you’ll get more or…

  • 2018: A Recap

    I remember being younger and wanting so badly to be a grown-up. Well, now I am and I think that gives me permission to use phrases like, “wow, time really does fly”. This year has been the most exciting, travel filled and positive year of my life. I packed up everything in Australia, put it in a backpack and landed in Milan, Italy, where I have been working as an Au Pair since February. During this time I have travelled a lot across Europe, learnt a new language, made new friends and fallen in love. It’s been super wild! January I worked my butt off to say the least. I…

  • Monthly Personal #1: Where to Next?

    I’m kind of in two mindsets about 2019. But basically, I’m leaving the life I have created here in Milan and grown to be so in love with. I’m trading all this to start my dream university degree. I’m leaving Milan mid February, arriving in Australia and starting university at the end of February. Talk about time and money poor! I still don’t know if this is the right decision and direction for my life but I guess, I’ll soon find out. Travel Plans As far as travel plans go, I’m sure it’s going to be a good year. I’m kicking the year off with trips to Poland, Hungary and…

  • A Guide to Eating in Florence

    Florence, a city that you need to put on your bucket list and here is why… The former capital of Italy (Florence) is rich with history and culture. It boasts an array of monuments and “must see” sites. It’s location in the region Tuscany also adds another amazing element to the city… food and of course, wine!
