I think with today’s blog I more so want to ask a question rather than state my opinion. Dark tourism is defined as tourism involving places that evoke emotions of grief or despair due to previous actions in the location, and you only have to take a look at the rise in click-bait/Facebook articles to realise that this has somehow become a popular topic as … Continue reading Dark Tourism: poor taste or interesting AF?
So many people have dreams about going on trips, but they can’t seem to get past what they think a trip will cost. Yes, travelling can be expensive but it doesn’t have to be. This is going to sound weird, but the biggest piece of advice I give people who want to travel is – lower your standards. I don’t mean cut activities off your … Continue reading Lower your holiday standards – you don’t have Beyoncé’s budget.
I’m not entirely sure when this happened, but I found out yesterday –Jetstar are now doing AfterPay on flights, which makes them the first Australian airline to do so. For those that don’t know, AfterPay is a service that basically gives you the option of buying something and receiving it almost straight away, however you are charged for it over the next 4 fortnights via … Continue reading Ballin’ on a budget: are AfterPay flights a good idea?
Growing up studying The Crucible and the witch trials, I was always fascinated by Salem, hence my stop there on my road trip last year. But did you know there are two Salem’s in that same area?

Port Vila, in Vanuatu, was my favourite stop of the cruise. I’d heard that Vila was really similar to Australia, and I think we went in to that day trip expecting it … Continue reading Cruise Shore-Trips 101: don’t sell your friend to your driver
When I made the decision that the year 2018 would be a year of solo travelling, I was met with two responses. The first was excitement and the second was a thinly veiled version of pity. The truth of the matter is that there are so many things I want to see in this world, and previously I was waiting for the right time or … Continue reading “Won’t you be scared?”
That equation was explained to me when I went to visit The Salem Witch Museum in Massachusetts, and it’s something that has stuck in my head since then because it just makes sense to so many situations. We think of a witch hunt as being something that happened in ancient times, but if we look back to the last 100 years I can think of … Continue reading Fear + A Trigger = Witch Hunt
