    Day 3

    July 5, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Well today was pretty tough. The day started with a wonderful breakfast (homemade granola, yoghurt and banana, healthy smoothie, Mellow Yellow & coffee, of course!)
    A morning Reiki session with the lovely Esther. A one and half hour session that went for two hours. I wasn’t too sure what to expect but I came away with more realizations about myself and some home truths that I haven’t dealt with from the past. Esther is a true healer! She is thoughtful and comforting and reassuring through every aspect of the session. I’m so happy that I booked this session!

    My afternoon was spent with treatments (body scrub & manicure) and then an afternoon by the pool and a nanna nap before dinner. After an emotional morning I was ready for an early night to recharge and be ready for a new day.

    Day 2

    July 3, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    We arrived yesterday at 4:30pm. Our flight was late leaving Melbourne so we were an hour late getting into Denpasar. Our lovely driver, Suriarni, was waiting patiently and with a beaming smile on his face. I love how nothing fazes the Balinese people.
    After almost two hours of driving we arrived at Bliss Ubud. We were greeted by the lovely Christina in a warm embrace.
    We got the general run-down of the place and then went for our first massage. Once again my therapist, Aya, was amazing! Then a quick shower ready for a Bliss dinner. The food is totally delicious and created with care and love.
    An early night followed for this tired and weary body.
    Looking forward to my first full day of doing nothing tomorrow.

    December 27, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    First day in London today. We bought a two day pass for the Big Bus Hop On Hop Off starting at 9am and we returned home at 5:30pm. BIG DAY!
    We made our way to the Hard Rock Cafe which is situated on the north side of Hyde Park, so Mary Anne could add to her pin collection. After that we made our way back to Trafalgar Square and had a late breakfast, early lunch at a cost pub called the Admiralty. From there we made our way to Covert Garden to the market and enjoyed mull wine and I bought a new hat. After finding out that many of the West End shows I liked were way out of my price range I decided to give the theatre shows a miss. From here we made our way back to Buckingham Palace, unfortunately Liz and the family were not there to great us with tea and a scotch finger biscuit but we did get to take some great photos along with ten thousand others.Read more

    December 23, 2018 in the Netherlands ⋅ 🌧 8 °C

    I have been in Amsterdam for the past 10 days. It is a beautiful little city with lots of winding streets and lane ways. During this time I have managed to immerse myself in being a “local” by supermarket shopping, navigating the public transport and just chilling out in funky little cafes. As a tourist I have visited the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum museums, as well as the Hop On Hop Off bus routes. There are a wonderful array of restaurants within easy walking distance. I have used my UBER app for the first time and taken my first trip, which I found extremely easy, as well as ordering UBER Eats for home delivered take away. The one main memory I will have is waking up on my first morning in Amsterdam to snow! Although it was only a small fall and it was gone by late afternoon it turned the streets into a beautiful winter wonderland. Unfortunately it was not my white Christmas but I loved it anyway.Read more

    December 14, 2018 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    Final day in Iceland today. It was nice to have a sleep in after two massive days touring with very early mornings and very late nights. This place is truly amazing, the people are extremely friendly and hospitable, their second language is English so communication is very easy. The scenery is some of the most spectacular I have ever seen and in my four days here I have only scratched the surface. It is quite expensive to eat here but I was aware of it beforehand and just made sensible choices. Thank you Iceland for a wonderful experience, I would love to return one day.Read more

    December 13, 2018 in Iceland ⋅ 🌧 7 °C

    Well I’ve spent the past four days in the most amazing country. Iceland is the most raw and natural place on this earth. The people are extremely friendly and welcoming. The capital city, Reykjavik, which has been home, is a city with a village feel to it. There are approximately 300,000 people that call Iceland home but it feels like a whole lot less. After the hassle and bussle of New York, Reykjavik is a slow moving breath of fresh air. The city has tiny cobblestone roads and brightly coloured houses that are generally two story with one house upstairs and another separate house downstairs. The sights and tourist attractions are numerous, I managed to fit in two tours, Northern Lights, Golden Circle and a very special day at the Blue Lagoon. This is one place I would definitely want to revisit.Read more
