What It’s Like To Stay In A Capsule Hotel – Sydney, Australia

Staying in a Japanese style capsule hotel had been on my bucket list for a while.  I then read somewhere that a lot of the ones in Japan are ‘male only’, so I wouldn’t be welcome anyway!  HOWEVER in May 2017, Australia’s very first Capsule Hotel opened in Sydney and during my 2018 trip, I booked in for 4 nights!

Tips For Travelling With A Drone

As a fairly new drone pilot I’m still learning the ins and outs of travelling with a drone, but I thought I would share with you some of my experiences so far!  I bought a DJI Spark because it’s one of the smallest drones out there, yet still produces good images and videos!  One of my biggest priorities when I bought it, was that it had to be small enough to be able to travel with easily!  But it’s not as simple as getting on a plane and then sending it up when you arrive in the destination, there’s a lot to consider.

Brisbane to Sydney Road Trip: 7 Day Itinerary

A while back I shared my Perth to Coral Bay Western Australia road trip itinerary and now here is my next Australia itinerary!  In this post I share my Brisbane to Sydney road trip.   Here’s the thing, there are SO MANY places and things to see and do on Australia’s East Coast.  I was travelling with 2 people with restricted holiday time but does that mean we shouldn’t travel because we can’t do it ‘slow enough’ of course not!  We packed so much into our 7 day road trip and now I’m sharing my experience with you!

Australia Packing List: Winter Edition

There’s no denying that everyone loves a good nose at what people pack in their suitcases and now I’m going to give you a look into mine.  This is a look at what was on my Australia packing list for a 2 week trip during winter!  Typically when the Northern Hemisphere gets their school breaks, the Southern Hemisphere is just coming into winter.  So while I’ve been used to temperatures reaching between 30c – 40c (high 80fs to 90s), I traded them in for temperatures a bit of a jump lower than that!

35 Things To Do in Dubuque Iowa in Summer

Woohoo! It’s the summer so as someone that works in a school that means 3 months off! Back home we only had 6 weeks off in the summer, so I can’t imagine what it’s like for a parent trying to keep their kids entertained for 12 weeks (I guess that’s why summer camps are a popular option!).  Whether you have kids or are just enjoying a summer trip or the warm weekends, here’s a giant list of things to do in Dubuque Iowa in the summer!

A Guide To Kenosha, Wisconsin

I’ve written about Kenosha, Wisconsin several times already but what better way than to stick it all together in a helpful guide, just in time for the summer!

A Museum like NO OTHER: City Museum St Louis, Missouri

It’s hard to find the words to describe just how crazy the City Museum in St Louis is.  The best I can come up with is a ‘giant creative steam punk playground’!  It’s definitely not your typical museum!  It’s literally a giant mash of sculptures, where everything can be climbed on/up/through or slid down!  This is the work of Bob Cassilly and his team of 20 other artists and sculptors!  The City Museum opened in 1997 and is built in a disused building that was part of the International Shoe Company Factory.

Practicing Goga (Goat Yoga)! Coco’s Ranch, IA

Goga. Yep, goat yoga is very much a thing and it’s absolutely BRILLIANT.  I first discovered it watching the local Iowa news and within an hour or so I had booked myself onto a session.  I’ve become obsessed with yoga since moving to the States and you can’t deny that baby goats are ridiculously cute, so it seemed like the perfect combination!
