Welcome to the Northern Territory! Continue Reading

Where the heck am I?

Posted on September 12, 2016

Where are you right now? Which country did you just see again? These are questions I get quite a lot and it doesn’t surprise me as I do tend to fall off the planet every now and again.

Sharing images of my travels through Instagram seems so much easier when you’re spending not more than two or three nights at the same location. Time for a personal update! Continue Reading
