One day in Copenhagen

København, the merchant’s harbour, has always seemed to be a perfect getaway destination and despite I’m not into anything in Europe lately, it stayed somehow on my list. I was always attracted to the Nordic things (except the cold), the Scandinavian design and also to the men (the Viking blood is charming or what?). The…

Who are you, Zombie?

I spent a day in nature alone – just me and my playlist -, and it made me rethink my previous perceptions. (The followings connect to my post from March.) We can say that Mother Nature is high. Extremely. If we look at it from our comfortable and civilised boxes it may appear scary, but…

5 days from Sydney to Adelaide | South Australia

After an amazing music experience, very little REM (I wouldn’t call 5 hours sleep relaxing enough), and a struggle to find an Uber on Sunday morning, I had the last sip from my coffee, called a Bolt to get to Sydney Airport and was ready to drive to Melbourne. Car relocation is one of the…

How to spend 5+1 Days in Sydney

If I hadn’t come to Australia because of Mr Diabetes, I’d probably have arrived in Sydney first. Why? Because it’s Sydney babes. As I heard, there are two kinds of opinions about the Harbour City: you love it or you hate it. I’m of the view that if you have your well-being inside and know…

Byron Bay to Sydney | New South Wales

When I returned to Australia the original idea was to spend here another 3 months before heading back to Asia. Did I already mention how much I love to change my plans? :) I didn’t exactly know where I want to start and stay, how long, and what to do.. so just randomly scrolled on…

Airlie Beach to Gold Coast | Queensland

After the 3 weeks of volunteering on Quoin Island, the time has come to return to the civilisation; honestly, this scared the sh*t out of me, and when I arrived in Airlie Beach all my concerns made sense immediately. The background song I started my Queensland trip with: Travelling around Australia is cool (if we…

Sea Turtles of Queensland

The Brisbane winter was bad to my mood, so I decided to head up North to explore a bit more from Queensland. I think HelpX is a fascinating platform and it works very well in Australia: you can find various places and jobs, meet amazing people, do something good with volunteering, and overall expand your…

Welcome to Australia: Brisbane

The big Australian story. I don’t even know where to start, so I simply follow the chronology – also, don’t know what I think and how I feel about this time, hence am looking forward to figuring out in the following posts. First of all: I never wanted to come to Australia; somehow it didn’t…

The Secret life of Bees

Let’s talk about the bees. I had the luck and opportunity to spend 3 weeks around honeybees. Well, I haven’t got that much direct connection with them as I wished, but they were buzzing around me all the time, so I’m happy with my first-time experience and pretty sure it will be continued. Bees are…

Goodbye New Zealand: Coromandel

For my last days, I went up to the Coromandel Peninsula. On the way from Tauranga, I stopped by Whangamata because it has the Donut Island. It looks cute, but the beach was busy because of the long weekend, I’m not a kayak person, also reached the point that I’m bored to do anything alone,…
