Honey I’m home! And just like my 6 week stint of exploring Europe has come to an end. I am so excited to share with you in detail all the places we went, cities we saw and things we learned. My 2018 Europe trip feels like a dreamy moment in time that never really happened – everything went perfectly well, no missed flights, broken cameras or stolen phones and zero nasty encounters!

I feel so inspired about travel writing and photography after returning from our week trip to Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays. It’s autumn in Australia but the weather at Hamilton was 30 degrees all week and very humid.
It really is a picture perfect paradise with a variety of activities, scenes and wildlife. Here are some of my top shots to prove it. Enjoy!
Ps.. My new motto – Life is not about pretty pictures, but rather pretty and memorable moments.

I was watching The Beach with Leonardo DiCaprio last night which is a movie where in short DiCaprio ventures with a French couple to The Beach – which is a hidden island in Thailand near Koh Samui. Looking at all the beautiful cinematography reminded me of my visit to Thailand a couple of years back. Here are some of my photos from the gorgeous Phi Phi Island – just a short boat trip from Phuket.
My favourite thing about traveling is experiencing new cultures and ways of life. The Maldives provided nothing short of resorts and hotels that really allowed their guests to experience the Maldivian Island lifestyle. Cocoa Island is a resort only a forty minute speed boat trip from the capital Male. It is the sister island to Maalifushi, and although it isn’t as new as Maalifushi, it is still one amazing island.
Everyday I love to learn something new about people and the world around me. I am currently in the process of finishing my degree and listened to an insightful lecture yesterday. As I work in and am passionate about the creative industries, this one hit home for me. It asked what makes a creative individual. From the points below I was surprised to learn that we all have the capacity to be creative and that creativity isn’t just something that some people are born with.
So did you know…
- Creativity comes from several sources, not just the genius of one person
- Creativity often comes from the environment around you, rather than people ‘thinking’ more creatively
- Creativity isn’t just a light bulb revelation moment, but years of hard work
And I can see how relevant this is based on all the creative types I admire (like my favourite bloggers Tuula and Sincerely Jules)
So are you a creative person? Because we all have the capacity to be one. Creative types are:
- A combination of smart and naive: bounce around with different ideas, even if they are off field
- Playful and disciplined
- Introvert and extrovert: depending on the situation
- Alternate between fantasy and reality
- Passionate yet objective: you can stick to an idea but ditch it if it’s not working
