24 Hours in Canberra

24 Hours in Canberra

Admittedly, I had pretty low expectations prior to visiting Australia's capital city. With the exception of politicians, ardent museum goers, and city planners, Canberra is seldom considered a destination. However, when Nick suggested a day trip to Canberra from Southwest Sydney, I was more than happy to oblige. After all, we have somewhat unique tastes when it comes to [...]

Christchurch Creatives: Green Roots Organics

Christchurch Creatives: Green Roots Organics

The city I experienced as a tourist in 2009/2010 is vastly different from the Christchurch that exists today. The old Christchurch was beautiful and Victorian, and a wee bit stuffy.

Hanoi, Vietnam's capital, retains much of its old world charm whereas HCMC (formerly Saigon) is fast-paced and racier. Just [...]

Soho Weekend Guide

What hasn't been said about New York City? I've even written about it on this blog before. What I find most impressive about this city is that there's something new to discover with every visit; whether sticking to one neighbourhood or venturing to each of the five boroughs. Soho has received a lot of blogger attention due to its [...]
