Journal | Billabong Cottage

For the first weekend of September my husband and I packed up the car, grabbed our dogs and headed down the Coast for a little getaway. We stayed in a gorgeous Airbnb called ‘The Billabong Cottage’ at Termeil and it was the perfect mix of country, coast and cosy. Staying for two nights allowed us the chance to rest, take the days slow, explore Termeil state forest, Ulladulla beach and the walking track surrounding this gorgeous property.

The Brindabellas | Journal

Somehow I missed Winter. What I mean is, the Winter snow and the Winter adventures. I didn’t want to wait an entire year so a couple weeks ago while I was sick, my husband and I went for a short drive to The Brindabellas.

Adventure | Square Rock

Over the weekend my husband and I went for a hike through Corin Forest to the top of Square Rock. It’s a 10km round trip within Namadgi National Park and has a steady elevation through some truly magical bushland and granite boulders. There are so many different plants, trees and flowers living harmoniously together that create a magical atmosphere as you hike to the top.

Just start. Then, keep going

Hello again, it's been a while! So much has happened since I last put thought to paper, well, keyboard now. Truthfully, I've been thinking about blogging again for months, but I just got in my own way. I kept putting it off, using every reason you could imagine. When it all boils down, the reasons are simply, excuses. So, tonight I decided to 'Just start. Then, keep going'.
