The Fine Print

I am one of those people who is insured for pretty much everything because I know that anything that can go wrong, probably will. It makes sense to be insured. Travel insurance fits into this category, but even with the care I take with the policies, I have still been caught out. It was theContinue reading “The Fine Print”

Outta This World

I work as a writer for a luxury, bespoke travel company. Our clients are extremely wealthy and educated, wanting beautiful, but more unusual travel experiences. Our philosophy is, if you can dream it, we can organise it. Not only do I research and write about exotic locations all over the globe, but I have toContinue reading “Outta This World”

Everything seemedContinue reading “Trouble In Paradise”

Bearly There

Despite living in Australia with some of the deadliest creatures on the planet, I’m terrified of grizzly bears. Part of the problem comes from watching too many episodes of, I Survived; a TV series about people who’ve survived horrific animal attacks, telling their story while you sit mesmerised and terrified of their mangled faces andContinue reading “Bearly There”
