Japan 2017 | Day 7 | Hiroshima & Koyasan

SEE I had been looking forward to the Hiroshima Peace Park and Museum since we decided to do this trip. With everything happening in the world today it was good to look back and hope we don’t make the same mistakes. The A-Bomb Dome was the first glimpse we had of the terror the atomic…

Japan 2017 | Day 6 | Hiroshima

SEE We travelled from Takayama to Hiroshima today, although it sounds boring Japan was made for travelling. Everything is so easy, comfy and the scenery is beautiful. Once we arrived in Hiroshima it was straight on to Miyajima Island and the Itsukushima Shrine. The island was gorgeous and there were wild dear just wondering around,…

Japan 2017 | Day 5 | Takayama

Takayama is an old and very traditional town so I was excited to explore more of this place and finally try some sake. SEE This morning we woke up after a sleep in a tradional ryokan, it was a surprisingly good sleep for pretty much having the floor as a mattress. Our first stop for…

Japan 2017 | Day 4 | Takayama

Today was a travel day, we journeyed from Tokyo to Takayama. Part of our journey was on the bullet train which was a great experience. The scenery on the way was incredible, so many rice patties and mountains. SEE In Takayama we went to the Hida Folk Village, it was very cute and gave a…

Japan 2017 | Day 3 | Tokyo

SEE​​ Today was a free day so we decided to check out the Tokyo National Museum and Ueno Park. It was such a gorgeous day to wonder around the park and get a little more insight into Japanese history. We then went to Koenji, a Japanese neighborhood. It was super cool with heaps of restaurants…

Japan 2017 | Day 2 | Tokyo

The first full day in Tokyo. I’m continually blown away by all the different things to do, we got a taste of all the major sites today. SEE Our first stop was the Senso-Ji Temple. Although we went there yesterday it was good to get a bit more background. People believe the incense we burnt…

Japan 2017 | Day 1 | Tokyo

I don’t know what I expected my first glimpse of Tokyo to be like but we were greeted by lush green grass, rice patties and traditional houses. The train ride into the city was amazing, we went through so many different areas. We were very keen to get exploring and find some real sushi! SEE…

New Years 2017 | Bremer Bay

To bring in 2017 we decided to spend a few nights in Bremer Bay. I didn’t really know where it was or what it was like but was happy to be with my friends and have a little getaway. Bremer Bay is about 6 hours from Perth (that included a few pee and photo stops)…

Honeymoon Pool & Black Diamond | Collie

Europe was 100% amazing but it also made me think about how I don’t really appreciate what’s in my own backyard. Anyone that knows me knows that I couldn’t wait to get out of Collie when I was younger but now I see it as somewhere to be proud of. Sure it’s a small town…

Harris River Dam and Harris River Estate | Collie

Today I wanted to show Richard a little bit of Collie. It was a bit of a hard decision, I forgot how much there’s to do around here. We settled on Harris River Dam simply because it was closest and a good starting point. We were the only ones there, it was so peaceful and…

Europe 2016 | Day 15 | Berlin

Today we wanted to tick off the touristy places and see how this city was affected by the Nazi reign. DO I had already seen a checkpoint on my way to Berlin but had to check out the famous Checkpoint Charlie. It was very stylised, I think seeing the larger and abandoned Checkpoint Alpha was much…

Europe 2016 | Day 14 | Berlin

After an awful night of food poisoning I was determined not to miss out on seeing Berlin. DO The start was a bit slow but we decided to do a walking tour. We did it through Original Berlin Tours. This tour was focused on street art but still had a bit of history. It was…
