Jervis Bay was a place that was regularly talked about by Backpackers as THE place to see the whitest of sand and playful Kanagroo’s in NSW, and for this reason it has been on my Bucket List of Australia for a long time. Finally I got to experience the true beauty of Jervis Bay a couple of weekends ago, and I couldn’t wait to capture all my memories here as it’s definitely not a weekend I’ll be forgetting in a hurry!
Time really does fly by when you’re having fun (cliché but so true)! I thought I’d write a brief update about what I’ve been up to in my first few months in Australia and I guess how the devil I ended up here! This is more of a personal post than usual for me, one that I hope I’ll enjoy looking back on! With that being said, here goes…

Earlier this year I embarked on one of my most challenging adventures yet – I decided to trek to Everest Base Camp in aid of Friends of Amasango UK. This trek involved 13 days of continuous walking up to an altitude of 5,365m (5,643m if you include Kala Patthar!) whilst battling the freezing cold temperatures and bitterly winds. I have been asked many questions about this trip so I thought I’d attempt to summarise the most frequently asked ones below.

When I told most people that I was heading to Chernobyl they thought I was mad, few were intrigued and my parents as usual told me to “have a lovely time”. Here I will share some thoughts and feelings surrounding my trip to Chernobyl, and some practical tips on how to go about organising your own trip!
Thanks for joining me!
Before I embark on this crazy adventure of mine, I thought now would be the perfect time to capture some of my favourite trips to date. Stay tuned for posts featuring these.
For now, let me leave you with one of my favourite quotes; one that I can truly relate to and hope everyone is able to experience at some point in their lives.
“I hope you have an experience that alters the course of your life because, after Africa, nothing has ever been the same” – Suzanne Evans
