Oriental

I’m still going through the hoards of shots taken on my last trip to Thailand, and although I have somewhat adjusted to being home now, I still get a little nostalgic looking through the pics and remembering the amazing time that was had! That’s the beauty of holidays I suppose; they always leave you wanting more.

Samui

This was by far my favourite day of ours in Samui. Pure bliss and utter relaxation. It was a day of exploration in the most adventurous (or dangerous?) way – on the back of a Thai motorbike.

We certainly made up for that stress by lazing around on kilometres of untouched beaches. The white sand and turquoise water was a thing, I thought, only in postcards. Clearly I was mistaken. This particular day was just breathtaking. Continue reading Samui

Intercontinental

Oh to be intercontinental more frequently! My state of wanderlust is growing deeper and deeper and my recent trip only spurred it on. Especially after this particular visit.

We had the amazing privilege to be able to visit the Intercontinental Hotel in Koh Samui, Thailand for sunset drinks and dinner on our last trip. As we took in the amazing view, it became clear why the hotel had made it on the New York Times’ ‘1000 Things to do Before You Die’ list.

Phi Phi Dreaming

There are no words to describe the beauty of this place and despite my incessant snapping, it was near impossible to fully capture the wonder of it all.

You know a place is beautiful when the raw creation outdoes the smarts of our technology. I feel no amount of camera tools or instruments could capture the beauty of this place to its full extent.

The Phi Phi Islands are definitely a place you need to see with your own eyes in order to fully experience its amazement. Put it on the bucket list!

Hope you can catch a glimpse of what took my breath away.

Travel Essentials

I’ve been a bit MIA after my last post which is because I’ve been too busy enjoying the sunshine and blue waters of Phuket Thailand. Much more on that to come though! In the meantime, I’ve put together a short list of some essential travel items.

After years of struggling with what to take for a long haul trip, I think I’ve pretty much got it down pat. There’s a super fine line, and whilst I do push the boundaries in those little clear snap lock bags, I do still claim to be a light traveller.

Resort Life

Love a good getaway and it’s not often that I get to have one so close to home and on a weekend! #spoilt

Despite the getaway only being quick one (just 45 minutes north of my home on the Central Coast) we had a fabulous time of relaxation.

Nested on the shores of Lake Macquarie, I spent last weekend at Raffertys Resort which was absolutely stunning. Just hoping this weekend brings equally as much goodness!

Wedding Love

It’s definitely that time in my life where I feel as if I’m attending a wedding every second weekend. It’s that mid-twenties phase and I know before long it will be baby showers and first birthdays. Life moves on very quickly! Too quick for me to keep up really.

This weekend it was my step-brothers wedding at The Mercure Rafferty’s Resort on the shores of Lake Macquarie NSW, despite living 40 minutes away, we chose to stay for the weekend and had a fabulous weekend of RELAXATION!

Paddington

I try to get down to Sydney as often as I can, however, yesterday was the first in a while due to being so busy at work. It was honestly like a breath of fresh air! So many beautiful people around, amazing places to eat on every corner and things buzzing til late on a ‘school night’.

Made the most of some meetings in Paddington to see the sights around time. It was definitely a good excuse. It just made me realise how much I need to come down more often – given it’s only 45 minutes down the road!

The Beach – Thailand

Just had the excitement of booking my first holiday in a long time! This break is well overdue and comes as a welcome retreat during the school holidays!

We’re spending some time in Phuket at the start of our trip before venturing over to Koh Samui to explore there. It will be a first in Samui and I just CAN’T WAIT!

A perfect way of extending Summer that little bit longer! #wintersux
