After Minca I headed off the typical tourist map to an Island that is barely known about even by Colombians. I had a lot of recommendations to go San Andreas and some of the more well known spots however my Mum mentioned a friend of her co -worker was running a hostel on an island … Continue reading A hidden gem, Isla Fuerte
After a week of the heat and noise that comes with Santa Marta I decuded to spend a couple of days coolunf off in the mountains of the Sierra Nevadas.

Earlier today I sat knowing I "should" write a blog. However I didn't because honestly I didn't want to and let's be real, this is not something I get paid for it is something I enjoy.

The final month in Perth flew by and my "to do list" eventually was left with "Get on the plane" That was five days ago. After an over night stay in Melbourne I flew … Continue reading So I got on a plane around the world
To think I will be out of here in thirty something days is exciting and also a little unnerving. My list of things to purchase and organise continues to get smaller just like the numbers on my countdown. The biggest update from my last post is that I am going carry on only. Yes I … Continue reading Zacpacking across the globe

Although here in Perth Summer does not seem to be wrapping up just yet so they days are still hot, albeit shorter. March has brought about my birthday and I have ticked over the three month mark.
