My Six Week Europe Travel Itinerary

Hooray! It’s here. I have been wanting to share my travel itinerary with you guys for quite some time now, but to be honest, 6 weeks traveling throughout Europe takes a while to plan, especially when you’re booking it yourself and not using travel tours like Contiki or Top Deck. Especially tricky to plan when you’re working full time, traveling with different people and as indecisive as me! Continue reading My Six Week Europe Travel Itinerary

Memories from Paris

I must say I do love Facebook memories and all the highlights from years gone by that come to surface. On Valentines Day in 2013, 5 years ago, I visited Paris with my 2 London gal pals Bec and Neelam. At the time we were all on exchange studying at Roehampton University in London for half a year.

Winter Getaway to Byron Bay 

The last time I traveled to Byron Bay in winter was a couple of years ago. Oh my – how good it felt to be back at this time of the year. I’ve forgotten how powerful nature can be in the cooler seasons. Over the past two weeks Byron has experienced a tremendous bout of rain. Luckily the sun decided to shine and the clouds cleared up as soon as we arrived for the weekend.

You’ll often hear me talk about Byron Bay. It’s our go to place over summer and the new year, although we don’t often go up over winter. I guess it’s the whole mentality of “save beachy places for summer” but how wrong we can be! No regrets for visiting during the middle of winter because Byron sure did put on a show for us.

I can’t promise this weather to everyone because I think we must of just got the window of sunshine. The water was incredibly clear and the sun was super warm. We managed to sneak in a few ocean dips and hubby enjoyed several surf sessions he raved about the whole weekend.

Every time we go to Byron it ends up as a food tour. I’m convinced this coastal town has some of the best food spots in Australia, especially for breakfast. I couldn’t tell you just how many incredible cafes and restaurants there are. This delicious coconut concoction was from Bay Leaf which is a well known cafe in B-town.

We always like to try something new or see a different place every time we visit Byron. This time around we ventured to Brunswick Heads which is only a 20 minute drive from Byron. It’s quieter, has an amazing pub called Brunswick Hotel and has some really cute shops and cafes.

On Sunday morning we managed to squeeze in a quick walk up to the Cape Byron Lighthouse, by following the trail from Wategos Beach. Would highly recommend it as the views were to die for and we spotted about 30 dolphins swimming off shore – amazing!

The beauty of Byron is that every time you go you’ll discover something different, meet someone new and come home feeling refreshed and in tune with nature.

Have you visited Byron Bay in winter?
